The storm also caused a change in plans for the 4th of July. Birch Trail was without power for an extended period of time, and during that period, we agreed to host the social. Our guys have been working tirelessly to put together a program with 48 hours notice that will compare to last year’s Avatar Social. The guys can’t wait for the girls to come, and we can’t wait to see what the guys have come up with!
On Saturday morning, we hosted the Spider Lake Environmental Education for Kids (SLEEK) gathering at camp. The staff from the Cable Natural History Museum taught many of our campers and some kids from around the lake about our local environment and eco-system. We were proud to host such a great event again.
We also had a very successful Rookie Weekend at camp. If you know of anybody that might be interested in our second Rookie Weekend, you can have them check out the website at www.NorthStarCamp.com/Rookie or just give us a call.
Sunday night was the always exciting Glen’s game, where the campers work tirelessly to get into all four “safe zones” around camp. The difficult part is that the counselors are trying to stop them by pulling their flags. The campers love trying to defeat the counselors in the game and they always go all out for this one.
And now it’s the 4th of July festivities! Our morning started with sparklers on the pancakes, and a ton of excitement. And we’re only just beginning!
