My son goes to Camp North Star, has for 5 years and will continue to do so until they lock the place up. The experiences, interactions, creativity, friendships, confidence----it's all amazing, and in the truest Maine fashion, the greatest facilities, in the woods, on a lake....just ideal in every way. People talk about "camp", but they should literally trademark the word, CAMP should be exactly this, not some summer program at a shut down Community college with kids living in dorms and eating in a closed cafeteria and doing some specialized sport that they do all year anyway. CAMP means just that, woods, lake, archery, ropes course, stained glass, boating swimming, games, songs, campfires---all of it, and friendships and knowledge of people from all walks of life who will share these memories for a lifetime. I love it.

"My greatest memory of my daughter's camp experiance last year, was picking her up. She was beaming, confident, and visibly filled with JOY. It is the way every parent wants to see their child, always."

It is not the one specific memory that makes me miss going to Camp North Star; when I think about camp I remember all the times I would be walking to my next activity, smiling and laughing with friends, not a care in the world: star gazing at night, banana boating with my cabin, even just having lunch,because I was with some of my best friends of all time.

I've been gong to Camp North Star in Poland Springs, Maine for 4 years. It's been a really great experience for me. It has allowed me to learn to be away from home for a long period of time. At camp, my bunkmates are like family to me. We're really close, and I feel comfortable talking about anything with them. The things I can do at camp, I can't do anywhere else. I can be the star of the musical in the morning, and then sail and rock climb in the afternoon. A few years back, I even learned how to play Cricket. When I first put down Cricket as an activity, my mom actually called the camp to see if they put me in the right class. She never would have thought that I would learn to play a foreign sport like Cricket. Overall, I love my summer camp (Camp North Star). It really is a home away from home.

We can't say enough of what a fabulous experience it is for our two boys, ages 13 and 15, to go to Camp North Star! Over the past five summers, they have enjoyed so many wonderful experiences that we could never have provided here in NJ. Their days are filled with exciting and various activities including waterskiing, and cricket! In addition, the quality of campers and counselors is second to none. They have developed relationships with campers and counselors over the years that are more like family than friends...this includes both Sue and Jay Goldberg! One of the things we especially like is the international exposure that CNS provides. Our boys have met people from all over the world and have come to appreciate the cultural diversities that they have been exposed to. Camp provides a complimentary experience to the other ten month's that they spend in NJ. I am lucky as well, I get to spend a month each year as the CNS camp nurse!!! It is my favorite time of the year. Clean air, bright stars, happy kids and a lot of laughter. That's living!!! As a family, we have all agreed that Maine (and CNS) is very special to each of us. I know that my boys will be there for many years to come. Both boys have expressed a desire to become conselors someday. I would love that.
“I greatly enjoyed speaking with Laurie (Guide at Maine Camp Experience). Thanks to her guidance, ideas and suggestions we truly feel that our ultimate choice is the right one for us. We can trust that our seven year old daughter will have a wonderful summer!”
