For the third year camp folks from across the world will spend the month of October working hard to raise money to send kids to camp. Camp Moves Me is an effort on the part of the American Camp Association to get people moving and get kids in need to camp. We're also hoping that for the third year, North Star remains on top as the Camp Champion!

Here's how Camp Moves Me works... Participants have to run, walk, bike or do other physical activity throughout the month of October. Upon creating their registration page, they commit to do a specific amount of physical activity over the course of the month. They they ask their family and friends to support them by pledging a donation based on the amount of activity that they do! So if you're already a regular runner, walker, biker or do other regular exercise, join in and see that activity help get kids to camp!

In 2016, money raised by Team North Star will go to the Camp for All Kids Foundation! Camp for All Kids helps send kids from underserved communities to North Star as well as Camp Birch Trail, Chippewa Ranch Camp, Camp Kamaji and Camp Timberlane. The Camp for All Kids Foundation has been North Star's scholarship fund for many years and we're excited to see the organization benefited this year.

We need your help to see North Star remain the Camp Champion in 2016! Any and all campers, staff, alumni and family members can Join Team North Star by going to:
Then reach out to all of your friends, family and co-workers to have them pledge to support you. You can also donate directly to support Team North Star if you aren't able to participate by clicking the green "Donate" button on our team page

Camp Parents, please help us by telling your camper about Camp Moves Me and encourage them to help give the gift of camp that they've been so lucky to be a part of!

Settle Up Success!

Last month I wrote to you about the North Star Settle Up Challenge, a gift matching campaign that invited our camp alumni to match donations made by our current staff from their camp paychecks at the end of the summer for the benefit of Camp for All Kids.

I am very proud to announce that 60 North Star staff members donated a total of $2,934.00 and that 40 North Star alumni pledged matching donations totaling over who donated a total of $22,000, resulting in the Settle Up Challenge raising more than $25,000!

Thank you to our staff members and alumni for your generosity!  The funds raised will support Camp for All Kids camperships for kids from underserved communities to attend North Star and the other partner camps.

There is still time to contribute to the Challenge! Donations are being accepted through the end of September.

If you have pledged money to the Settle Up Challenge or want to make a pledge, you can “settle up” online by clicking here (designate gift to North Star and write in second box “Settle Up Challenge”)  or send a check written to Camp for All Kids, P.O. Box 50149, St. Louis, MO 63105 (please write in the memo line “Settle Up Challenge.”)  All donations are tax-deductible. You can learn more about Camp for All Kids at

Thank you again to our great staff and alumni for your donations and making the Settle Up Challenge a success!
