Important Note re: COVID-19

North Star Camp operated successfully during the summer of 2020 & 2021. Our residential summer camp operated with campers and staff, and our Wilderness Trips Program took participants on a full slate of canoeing and hiking trips. We expect to be fully operational again in 2022. Operating amidst a pandemic requires putting into place comprehensive protocols aimed at keeping all campers and staff healthy and safe while also ensuring that our program is meaningful and fun. These protocols added additional layers of health and safety but also placed some limitations on all members. We anticipate that some of these protocols may be in place in 2022 to ensure that we are protecting every participant and staff member. As part of our hiring process, every prospective staff member will be provided with our COVID protocols.
