6/8/11 Pre-pre Camp Picture of the Day


Over the past several years, disc golf has become one of the more popular activities at North Star. The program started with a temporary basket brought to camp by our resident disc golf pro (and CIT Director) Jeff McCormack. Eventually we got our first set of baskets, then replaced them with higher quality ones. Now campers bring their own discs to camp and play year round back home.

The course at North Star has changed, too. Jeff changes it up and this year is no different. He decided that, in order to ensure a higher level of success for our campers, and more aces, he'd just have one hole with all of the baskets right next to each other. This way disc golfers are bound to end up in one of baskets. In reality, this is how we store our baskets over the winter... protected under the roof of our rifle range. Many things at camp end up getting stored in random places... with sail boats stored in Mike Hall, canoes in cabins, and fun bugs in the lodge.

And no, we didn't create a disc golf course with one hole... Jeff arrived at camp yesterday, one day early, in order to spend his day today putting the baskets in place through out camp.
