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. These would include waterskiing, wakeboarding, innertubing, 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. Staff are on hand to supervise our program areas and ensure everyone’s safety. Parents are expected to supervise their children throughout the week.
But thats 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 down 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, ended, of course, with s’mores.
Life at North Star is quite similar to that during the rest of the summer. This means living in camper cabins and using 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 comraderie 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.
