Coach and Artist in Residence Program
Families already love Camp North Star’s flexible elective program with 100+ activities in fine arts, performing arts, enrichment, athletics, waterfront and outdoors. Campers select five activities each week from those choices, then create a new schedule the following week. Our campers enjoy the freedom of choice to participate only in the classes they enjoy the most.
Our Coach and Artist in Residence program gives our campers an additional opportunity to customize their schedule even more with daily specialized classes from our visiting coaches and artists who excel at teaching youth. During the select weeks when our artists and coaches are “in residence,” campers may build these activities into their schedule. These visiting staff are all skilled and highly experienced instructors, chosen for their proven ability to work well with children of all ages.
Last summer, we had an exciting line-up of artists and coaches that visited Camp North Star throughout the summer.
Coach Chadwin Basketball Academy – Jamie Chadwin and his staff of basketball coaches gave our campers outstanding lessons and clinics for the beginner to the advanced basketball player.
The Handwork Studio – Classes included fashion design, fabric arts, machine sewing and hand sewing. Campers created handbags, pillows, pajamas and more.
Chef Steve Calise – For two weeks, Chef Steve offered classes in a variety of cuisines and taught our campers how to take a recipe and turn it into a gourmet dish.
Julian Krinsky School of Tennis – Krinsky is a leader in youth tennis programs. Their coaches helped our campers improve their tennis game.
New for 2017
Half-day workshops for campers who want even more instruction than a one-hour class allows. We will purposely limit the number of campers in each workshop to maximize the teaching and coaching.
In February, we will be announcing the 2017 Artists and Coaches in Residence for the upcoming camp season along with registration information for our half-day workshops.
