Review for Camp Northstar Inc, Islip, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been with Camp Northstar from the very beginning, when the idea first came up about starting a camp, to help deciding the original camp site. It was a labour of love then and it continues on today more than ten years later.
It is a camp where children and adults with disabilities can enjoy a week of fun, laughter, and the companionship of their peers. Laughter and cheers are the sounds you hear coming from the campers all day long from the different activities offered to them.
I promised three years ago when I moved to Las Vegas that I would returnto New York every August to continue being a part of Camp Northstar and it is a promise that I have gladly kept and hope to continue for as long as possible.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The smiles and hugs from campers after spending the week at Camp Northstar. The confidence of the ones who were so shy and afraid when they arrived to camp.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would like to add more volunteers so we could handle more campers.

Role:  Volunteer & I am a camp counsellor .
