Happy Holidays from NSC

We wanted to take this time to wish you and your family a happy and healthy holiday season. We are so glad that you choose to spend your summers with us! Whatever your plans for the holiday season, we hope that you have a lot of happy and healthy time with your friends and family.  And we are so thankful that you are a part of our North Star family.

With 2012 just ahead, we've got lots of news to share, and we're looking forward to our January newsletter, which will feature information about our 2012 staff. Our list of returners is tremendous and we know that you'll be thrilled about those guys who are going to make this coming summer a special one. In place of a full newsletter, we do have two quick pieces of info to pass along.

Logo Gear World Wide:
We've gotten a great response to our logo apparel, and now we want everyone to show off their North Star gear. We're trying to get as many pictures of campers, staff and camp families wearing their North Star gear wherever they are. We figured that with many of our campers traveling this holiday season, it would be a great time to kick this off. Whether you're headed somewhere exotic or even staying home, we hope that you'll join in the fun (if you're staying home, you just need to be creative...but appropriate). We'll start an album online of NSC Logo Gear World Wide!

To submit your pictures, you can either email them to, post them to Facebook and tag the North Star Camp page, or send them via twitter by adding @northstarcamp to your tweet. So as you're packing for the holidays, be sure to remember a NSC shirt or hoodie! Read more info about North Star Gear World Wide at Leb's Ramblings.

NSC Bowl Mania:
For those college football fans, we have again set up a group for Bowl Mania. Whether you or your son is a college football expert, a casual fan, or you pick your favorite team based on colors and mascots, it matters not. This is open to all campers, staff, alumni and friends. To join in, you can follow this link:
The password to enter the group is: keylog

As always, a wanegan goes to the winner.

Lastly, as you enjoy your time with your friends and family, don't forget to spread the word about North Star with anybody who may be interested. While we are full in almost every age group second session, we are still working hard to find the world's greatest campers. If you think of anyone that would be a good fit for North Star, please pass along their information to Andy (, 847-943-9559) or fill out our Refer-A-Friend Form  on the website.

Thanks for being part of the North Star Family!

Happy Holidays,

Leb, Sue, Dan and Andy
