DSC_4278Whether you’re joining the North Star staff for the first time or you’re a seasoned camp veteran, there are a few things we’ll need from you before the summer. We also have some resources to help you prepare for the summer. Below you’ll find details of some forms we need every staff member to fill out. You were sent the 2017 Staff Checklist to help walk through the forms that we need and other documents that you should read ahead of the summer.  Of course, don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or requests!

The Preparing for Camp Guide should be read by all staff. This will provide you lots of info to help you get ready for the summer, let you know about the forms we need from you, and also details more about our policies.
