Why 4-week Sessions are Important

At North Star, the shortest session we offer is 4-weeks. While that may sound like a long time, realize that what we are teaching takes time. Below are the reasons why we think a camp experience should be at least 4-weeks long:

  • Exploration of Activities
    • wide variety available, explore and specialize in favorites
  • Immersion in Camp Culture
    • fall in to a routine, account for adjustment period, learn traditions, become part of community
  • Development of relationships
    • with both campers and staff, experience stages of group dynamics
  • Increase in opportunities for experiential learning
    • More opportunities to observe role models, gain confidence in supportive environment, be a leader
