Camp North Star

What we're all about...

Camp North Star is a family-owned, traditional co-ed overnight camp for 7 - 17 year olds located on 200 pristine acres and a private lake. Our mission is to encourage our campers to discover and develop the best version of themselves. North Star's community is focused on personal growth and positive outcomes. We promote 21st century life skills that research shows help children succeed. North Star campers enjoy an elective program with 100+ choices in arts, athletics, enrichment, outdoors and waterfront activities. Guided by a nurturing and experienced instructional staff, every day is an extraordinary opportunity for growth and skill development. Families enjoy the flexibility of choosing 2, 3, 4, 5 and 7 week sessions.

We are the summer home to 375 campers from 24 states and 16 countries outside the United States. It's the North Star family and our strong sense of community that camp families truly value about us. Take the time to explore our website, where you can view our virtual tour, watch our video, and learn why families choose—and return to—Camp North Star year after year.
