Staff Spotlight – Brenden Knecht
– I was forwarded an email about camp from one of my friend’s, Scott. He encouraged me to look into the position. After looking into North Star Camp, I applied immediately. I think my skills as a swim lesson instructor, soccer coach, and youth group leader will help me be a leader and role model to the campers this summer. I am very excited to be joining the North Star Team.
