2023 Weekend Camp Events

Event Details

From now until the summer of 2024, our metro area camps have planned several special events for those who have a reservation at that camp. However, if you don't have a weekend reservation, we also have the option to attend these events without a weekend reservation by signing up here. 

If you'd like to make a reservation for one of our weekend camps, please head to https://camp.northernstar.org/Camp-Locations-and-Rentals.
