North Star Camp for Boys

Staff Spotlight - Nich Zevor

I am currently finishing up my junior year at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where I am studying History, Environmental Studies, and African Languages. More importantly, I am now  working with a few environmental activist groups and law firms here in Madison, raising environmental awareness on campus and starting to increase the student involvement in combatting the environmental degradation happening right here in this great state of Wisconsin. As a side note, I am studying for my LSAT because Law School is just on the horizon.

I'm a native of Racine, Wisconsin, but I've lived all over the globe. My family has spent time living in Japan as well as Dubai. This will be my 2nd year at camp and I'll be instructing ecology and tennis.
