Staff Spotlight – Adam Yaker
I’m Adam Yaker and I will be returning to North Star for my fifth summer as a CIT. I live in Huntington Woods, Michigan, a tiny suburb outside of Detroit and attend Berkley High School where I am wrapping up my sophomore year.
My home life outside of camp mainly consists in my participation and love for sports. This past year I played varsity tennis, junior varsity basketball and ran track for my school but I enjoy playing all types of sports with my friends. I write for my school newspaper and will be the new opinion section editor next year. Camp is just around the corner and I can’t wait to spend another summer at North Star.

What is your favorite special program at camp?

Best holiday gift that you’ve ever gotten?

How has camp impacted you?
– Camp is a place where I have made relationships with others from all across the country and despite not living near many of my closest camp friends, I know the friendships will last forever. Camp is special to me because it is a place where you don’t have to worry about what others think, you just can be yourself. Camp has allowed me to experience things I would never have been capable of experiencing otherwise.
