Fall Camp Staff
North Star Camp is actively hiring staff for the fall of 2020 at our camp in Northern Wisconsin. As Covid-19 is pushing schools to remote learning once again, North Star Fall Camp will offer an alternative learning environment for 5th-10th grade boys. Fall Camp will offer a safe setting for kids to complete their schooling requirements while offering opportunities for social and emotional growth they would traditionally gain in a school setting. Days at camp will consist of school in the morning and early afternoon, followed by various structured activities in athletics, water sports, creative arts, and adventure programming. Weekends will take on a more relaxed atmosphere and will give kids and staff alike the chance to explore the beautiful sights that autumn in Northern Wisconsin has to offer.
