American Camp Association Visit

We take great pride in our camp and our program, and today we were able to show it off. Every three years, we undergo our accreditation review through the American Camp Association. This process involves evaluating North Star against the ACA's standards for safety and care throughout our whole camp program. Not to brag, but we far exceeded expectations! 

We passed our review with flying colors, but thanks to Sue's hard work, that was never in doubt. One of the nicest parts about the process is that we use it as an opportunity to be constantly improving camp. And as we call attention to some of the nitty gritty details about camp, we should call attention to the hard work of Sue (on health and safety, maintenance and beautification, overseeing the kitchen and staff training) and Dan (on putting together the program, and great work with our HR department). 

And we also should call attention to the great efforts of all the people at camp who work behind the scenes. Our kitchen staff and maintenance staff work tirelessly to keep our campers safe and happy, and their efforts are greatly appreciated!
