2018 Staff Spotlight - Spencer Malkin

Hey everybody, my name is Spencer Malkin and I am so excited to come back for another summer at North Star! I just finished up my freshman year at Arizona State University studying Supply Chain Management. Besides studying for classes, I love to hang out with my friends, enjoy the great weather, and cheer on the Sun Devils at any sport I can get to!

Arizona has been so great because there are so many cool hiking trails through the many mountains all throughout the state. I just recently went to Sedona and was able to see the beautiful red rocks. I even climbed a mountain that took me to the Devil’s Bridge. I miss Chicago sometimes, but I always keep up on the Bears, Bulls, Blackhawks, and especially the Cubs! Can’t wait for another World Series Season!

This will be my 10th summer at camp.
