As many of you may have heard; The New York State Health Department has decided that sleep away camps not be allowed to operate this summer. We were hopeful that with added safety measures and modifications that Camp would be a reality this summer. We are truly saddened that Camp Northstar has been cancelled this year.
As difficult as it is for us to imagine not sharing Camp with all of you this summer, our campers' and counselors' safety is most important. We are confident that Camp Northstar will return in 2021 and all our camp family will be able to enjoy Camp Northstar as it was meant to be! Besides, we couldn't imagine Camp Northstar without hugs!! If you have any questions feel free to contact me.
Have a safe and healthy summer!
