summer camp

Our summer camp experience provides a unique opportunity for our children to gain self-confidence and independence. It also helps parents overcome issues of over protectiveness which may occur when raising a child with a chronic illness. 


North Star Reach Virtual Fall Family Camp

North Star Reach is continuing to keep the health and safety of campers, families, staff and volunteers their top priority. Therefore, they are continuing with virtual Camp-at-Home programming this fall for family camps instead of on-site programming. Below is their fall camp schedule, and a brief online registration form is now live at the Camp-At-Home website


2020 Fall Family Camp Schedule

September 25-27

General Session/Dance Marathon at the University of Michigan Family Camp (for children with a physical or developmental delay)

October 2-4

General Session/Sickle Cell Family Camp

October 16-18

General Session/Transplant Family Camp

October 23–25

General Session/Epilepsy Family Camp 


The hope is that a weekend of (virtual) Family Camp will give families just the right amount of camp community and mooseness to help build connections and create fun shared experiences together. Also, each family who registers before the proposed deadline will be receiving one of Moose’s famous camp-in-a-box Care Packages, which includes supplies for some creative activities, along with a special note from the mascot himself. Registration deadline for the full camp experience (including the Care Package) is September 11, 2020 for the first two sessions and October 2, 2020 for the last two sessions.
