Camp is for the campers… and for one week each summer, campers don’t have to be between the ages of 8-15. When our main season comes to a close and the buses roll away, camp is taken over by families. Our Post Camp is an opportunity for families to come up to camp, enjoy the Northwoods, and have a great time at North Star.
So what exactly happens at post camp? We run a loosely structured program each day, allowing families to take advantage of their favorite camp activities. Some activities are offered on a daily basis, including waterskiing, wakeboarding, tubing, climbing, archery and riflery. Others like fishing, biking, and tennis are offered periodically. Access to equipment, boats and courts is provided to throughout the week. North Star staff members are on hand to supervise our program areas and ensure everyone’s safety. Parents are expected to supervise their children throughout the week.
But that’s not all! Each day, we have a variety of different Arts & Crafts activities for kids and adults alike. We also offer different athletic activities each day. You’ll also have the opportunity to go canoeing, fishing, biking, and there is time each day to go on the “Blob” at swim point. Don’t worry…if you want to just sit around and enjoy a book, you can do that too! Each night we offer a different program, from a family talent show to stories at the Council Ring, ending with s’mores around the campfire, of course.
Life at Post Camp is quite similar to what our campers experience during the summer. This means our Post Campers live in camper cabins and use our communal wash house. All meals are served family style in our main Lodge. Post Camp is a great time to enjoy the outdoors with your family while participating in the camaraderie of camp. Please read over the Life at Post Camp and Etiquette pages to make sure that Post Camp is the right vacation for you and your family.
We’re especially excited that North Star was featured as one of 50 All-Star Family Camps by Budget Travel!
