Around the Campfire - 9/10/11

We're still busy at camp and have 90 post campers enjoying perfect summer weather. It is so much fun to watch families enjoy the Northwoods.

We've got one more camping adventure planned for this summer. In the spring I wrote to you explaining that we were organizing an event entitled "Around the Campfire" to be held at Banner Day Camp in Lake Forest, IL, north of Chicago on September 10, 2011 (09/10/11). The goal of the program is twofold.

- To have a fun, exciting day program for alumni and campers, followed by a BBQ dinner and an early evening concert by Paul Stookey of Peter, Paul and Mary.
- To raise funds for the Camp for All Kids (CFAK) Foundation. This foundation sends minority campers to camp.

We had hoped that the majority of our campers would get involved and help raise funds for CFAK. In fact, some of our campers created websites at camp and have begun raising money.

I believe the events at Banner will be a lot of fun and that anyone who attends will have a great time. Alumni from the 50's and campers from 2011 will have fun! We've made it easy for (camper's name) and you to attend. You can attend for a nominal contribution to CFAK.

All you need to do is for you or your son to join the North Star team at, create your own team and make a suggested contribution of $50.00. Then send the link to your family and friends. We know that if this is done, your team will help raise a significant amount of money for the Camp For All Kids Foundation. And you can attend "Around the Campfire" for free.

Please call if you have any questions.

Best wishes,
