Camp North Star

About Camp North Star

Camp North Star is one of the premier sleepaway camps in New England. We are the summer home to approximately 115 staff and 400 campers each summer. North Star prides itself in teaching our campers essential life skills that will help them grow as young adults and succeed back home after the camp season is over.

We pride ourselves in having a team of youth development professionals who are dedicated to being positive role models who guide, teach, and mentor our campers. Most staff enter the camp season expecting to gain skills supervising campers. By the end of the summer, staff realized they have gained valuable leadership skills in other areas including communication, organization, event planning, and teaching. The most rewarding parts of the experience for staff is the difference you make in a child's life and the strong bonds you create with fellow staff and campers.

“I worked as a summer counselor for 2 seasons and I really loved working here. I experienced so many new things that I never thought I would experience. Additionally to that, it brought me out of my comfort zone which was very good for myself. Over the time as a counselor, I learned so many new skills that have helped me in college and eventually after I graduate. Looking after a bunk full of kids and teaching activities all day, it will give you great experience in many ways. Furthermore, the other counselors and directors were great to meet and become friends along the way. It is great meeting people from all over the world and hearing about their life in different perspectives as well. Overall, Camp North Star was a great place to work and the owners will make sure you will have a great summer under the pines!”
