North Star Camp for Boys

Welcome To Pre-Camp 2016!

Pre-camp has officially begun!

As the last of our staff is making their way to the north woods from all over the world, we are ready to begin pre-camp 2016. For the next week, our staff will be participating in a one-week orientation to prepare for the campers' arrival next week.

Throughout pre-camp, the counselors will be getting the camp ready for the campers.  Our goals throughout the week are to build counselor unity, prepare project areas for the campers, and to make sure that our staff is ready to be the best that they can be. 

We kicked off our orientation on Sunday with canoeing practice and an introduction to camp games led by our new counselors in training. We started off today with our “new staff orientation” headlined by sessions about being a camp leader, our daily program, and overall expectations for the summer. Tonight, we will be playing ice-breaking games to bring our staff together. 

We have a packed schedule over the next week filled with program preparation, educational sessions, and hands on learning experiences.  Its going to be a busy week, but we know it will go by quickly and the campers will be here before we know it.
