Health & Safety At north star Camp for boys

Nobody is more concerned for the health and safety of our campers than we are. It is our utmost priority every summer.

We are proud to be accredited by the American Camp Association. The American Camp Association partners with the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Red Cross, and other youth-serving organizations to develop health, safety, and risk management standards based on best practices for camps to adhere to around the country. North Star Camp participates in a thorough accreditation process to ensure our camp operations, facilities, program quality, hiring practices and staff training, risk management, and emergency procedures and policies are best in class.

North Star Camp Health Center

At North Star Camp, we have a newly renovated, air-conditioned health center that is staffed by five Registered Nurses and health aides who are available 24/7. Our fantastic health center team provides the best care and support for the physical and emotional well-being of our campers and staff. We also partner with PediaTrust for virtual visits if needed and work closely with the medical team at Hayward Memorial Hospital, which is 15 minutes from camp.

Our health center team will provide communication and updates for parents if their camper stays overnight in the health center or requires outside medical care. We work with the PackMyRx pharmacy to ensure that every camper receives his correct medication and dosage at the right time of day and helps make our health center run more efficiently.
