It has been quite a year at North Star, and it has been quite a year for the North Star family. The latest version of the North Star Alumni Newsletter has all the details from the latest happenings at camp to updates on the whereabouts of alumni dating all the way back to the first years at North Star. Sue has worked very hard to compile a comprehensive roundup of news from North Star alumni across the country and the world.

We always love to hear from you and hope that you will keep us up to date on your latest news. Just head to the Alumni website ( and visit the Send Alumni News page.
And we hope that you stay abreast of all the happenings at North Star too. Stay up to date by following us on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. And help spread the word as well. If you know of anybody that may be interested in North Star for their son, please Refer a Friend.
