How has camp impacted you?
- NSC truly is my home away from home. I have spent more than a full year of my life there (71 weeks to be exact) and I keep going back because it is a place where I know that I can be myself. I feel safe to have fun at North Star in a way that only an isolated all-boys camp in Northern Wisconsin can offer.
