This week Camp North Star celebrated the 4th of July in style. We spent two days participating in some of our favorite patriotic traditions. The festivities started a day early on Monday evening. Campers and staff boarded busses for the short drive to beautiful Poland Spring Resort to watch some breathtaking fireworks. Every summer Camp North Star is lucky enough to be the only camp invited to this display, and this year didn’t disappoint. We spent the evening playing traditional backyard games like Kan Jam, cornhole, frisbee, and ladder ball until it was finally dark enough to watch the spectacular show light up the sky.
4th of July breakfast was a sea of red, white and blue. Campers and staff wore red, white and blue for Patriotic Dress Up Day. Chef Steve’s breakfast menu was Belgian waffles with strawberry and blueberry toppings along with whipped cream. Dinner was a traditional American style barbecue cook-out. Chef Steve treated us to some delicious burgers and hotdogs with all the fixin’s and red, white and blue popsicles for evening snack.
Traditions and rituals are an essential part of our camp community and everyone enjoyed celebrating one of our favorite days of the summer.
