Getting Things Done at Pre-Pre-Camp
We still have nearly two weeks to go until the busses roll up and we can begin our 72nd summer, but that doesn’t mean things aren’t already busy at camp.   Throughout the past couple of weeks, staff have started to trickle into camp to make sure that everyt...
Throughout the past couple of weeks, staff have started to trickle into camp to make sure that everything is set up and ready for the campers to get here on June 20th. Our goal is to have camp ready to go so that we can spend our official Pre-Camp orientation getting ready for the campers.

Unlike many, I started as a counselor and was amazed at the comraderie, spirit, and focus on developing both campers and young adults. Yes, camp is fun! United Nation Days and Pow-Wow day are a blast (and the food is better too). Having spent 9 summers at camp, nothing else can give you the experience that life dishes out- both good (mostly), bad (sometimes), and unusual (like the time a fish, caught a fish, caught a fish- how does that happen?) And now we enjoy it as post campers, and Andy and Dan do a fantastic job.

Both of my sons have gone or are still going to North Star. My brother went to North Star, and my uncle went there as well. North Star is so incredibly well run, with more of an emphasis placed on sportsmanship, fun, and getting along then on winning. The boys get to do what they love! The food is great, my kids have raved about it! I love North Star, and imagine that my grandsons (when I have them!) will go to North Star.
