Staff Spotlight - Simon Dinkin

Hey everyone, I'm Simon Dinkin and I'm returning to North Star for my seventh summer. I'm from from San Diego, CA, I'm finishing up my sophomore year at Torey Pines High School.  I recently went to La Paz, Mexico for Spring Break! We went to the beaches,snorkeled, and went fishing.  It was a blast!! I also started coaching a 2nd and 3rd grade Rec Basketball team.  This is my first year coaching and its been really exciting and fun teaching them new skills and working with the kids. 

As always I've been playing lots of soccer as well as focusing on school. I am counting down the days until camp and can not wait too be a CIT! Around camp you'll find me instructing althetics and dsic golf.
