Our mission is to encourage each of our campers to discover and develop the best version of themselves. We are committed to personal development within each of our campers and instilling our camp values and the 21st century life skills to encourage positive outcomes.

Campers live and learn in a nurturing and caring environment. Our enthusiastic, talented and skilled staff members, help facilitate and guide the development of each camper in their pursuit of strengthening social & life skills, fostering friendships and developing multicultural relationships.

Camp North Star will check all your boxes: Great facilities…check. Well trained and experienced staff…check. Water-ski…check. Performing arts…check. Great kids and welcoming environment…check. Tons of fun…check. But at Camp North Star, there is even more. We know that the experience of attending a great summer camp, like ours, has a value and outcome for children that no other educational experience can provide. Therefore, the goals for our campers are much larger...for our campers to become the best versions of themselves.
