A Day At Camp

The heart of the campers' experience at Camp North Star is the family they will be a part of in the cabin. Community living subtly encourages campers to open up and share stories and to develop friendships with others their own age. The cabins share two meals a day together (breakfast and dinner), sit together at camp meeting, and become the people you count on to make you smile when you're sad or laugh with you when you’re happy. The counselors and other campers in your cabin become your lifelong extended family.

Campers are grouped according to gender and age. We have three age divisions of campers :

Juniors (7 - 10 year olds)
Middies (11 - 13 year olds)
Seniors (14 - 17 olds)

Each division lives in their own area with boys and girls separated. There are 8-10 campers in each cabin. North Star’s campers come from across the U.S. and around the world. Typically there are 1 - 2 international campers in each cabin. While cabin life is an integral part of the camp experience, we do promote interacting with others throughout camp. Our youngest and oldest campers bond together through our Big Brother/Big Sister program. Meeting new campers is also a benefit of our daily schedule. The elective based program that allows campers to select their own schedule each week gives them the opportunity to participate in activities with other campers within their division.
