2015 January/February Travel Schedule

We’re getting ready to hit the road! Traditionally, the last week of January through the end of February means traveling to colleges, camper fairs and the American Camp Association National Conference. This year sees us visiting many of our traditional stops as we’ll return to places like Western Illinois University, several University of Wisconsin campuses, and Winona State University. We’ll head back to Indiana University and Purdue, where we haven’t been in a few years. We’ll also visit some new campuses, with trips to places like Ohio State University, Ohio U, Ball State and (hopefully) The University of Missouri.

Besides our staff recruitment, we will be back in St. Louis for the always popular Summer Opportunities Fair, this year being held at Whitfield School. New Orleans will be hosting this year’s American Camp Association National Conference, so we’ll make sure to sample some cajun food and beignets.

Below is our schedule of for the upcoming month. We’ll add a few stops, no doubt, but if you’re in the area, please let us know as we love seeing camp friends on the road. If you know of prospective campers or staff in these areas, we’d be happy to meet with any of them, so shoot us an email at office@northstarcamp.com with their details. We’re happy to schedule home visits with prospective campers and conduct in-person interviews with possible staff members. Referrals from those of you who know North Star is our greatest sales pitch.
