I appreciated that my children came home with a greater sense of independence, resiliency, and self-confidence. North Star did a great job teaching my kids these skills.
My daughter went to Camp North Star not knowing anyone. Now she has a group of girls she considers her summer sisters. The staff does a great job making everyone feel at home and help them make friends.
Our son loved his counselors. The experience was everything you could have hoped for as a parent.
My kids want to go back every year because North Star is their summer home. Brooke, Steven and the whole staff make everyone feel part of the family.
