Staff Spotlight: Jason Mann

Jason Mann returns to North Star for summer #3. Originally from New Berlin, WI, he’s currently studying at the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point in, you guessed it, Stevens Point, WI. There he’s a soils and waste management major.
Jason actually first came to us as a referral from Camp Timberlane and we’re glad that they didn’t have any remaining trip leader spots that summer. This will be his third summer as one of our trip leaders. Occasionally, when he’s not on trips, you can find him out long boarding, one of his big hobbies. Our campers and staff really love Jason’s sense of humor and having him as their trip leader!

Earliest camp memory or notable camp memory: my first night in camp eating dinner in the lodge sitting with Leb and Ben Mizel and talking about life and past experiences.
