Staff Spotlight – Adam Pechmann

 Hello to all of the summer 2013 staff both old and new at Camp North Star! I am counting down the days until I complete what may very well be the last semester of school of my life and cannot wait to get back to camp! I am currently a graduate student at Eastern Illinois University pursuing my Specialist Degree in School Psychology. I have been working within the school districts with parents, teachers, and students providing counseling services as well as assessments and diagnostics for special education, gifted programs, etc…

This will be my second summer at Camp North Star and I cannot wait to get back to see everyone from last summer and hopefully have an even more incredible experience than last year! After this summer, I have been given the awesome opportunity to work as an intern with St. Louis Special School Districts next year and look forward to working more independently in the schools. At camp I’ll be instructing softball, climbing and some biking.
