Hi, I’m Jordan! I spent five years as a camper at North Star and four years as a counselor from 2002 to 2010 (meaning that Jordan is returning for his Big Ten!). I was born and raised in Skokie, Illinois, where I graduated from Niles North High School in 2009. I am finishing my final year at Ithaca College in Ithaca, NY where I am studying Drama with a minor in writing.
I spent a semester in New Zealand with the National Outdoor Leadership School — which basically meant living in a tent for 77 days. And I studied for another semester at an intensive theatre academy. I spend my free time reading, watching movies, and cooking. At camp, I teach theatre games, mountain biking, and rock climbing. But I also love horseback riding and ultimate frisbee!
