Lakefront Bliss

  • Posted July 30, 2011 by

    Not every camp boasts its own private lake, but here at Camp North Star we are happy to say that all 55 acres of Worthley Pond are ours to enjoy. This means that we never have to contend with unknown boaters or vacationers sharing our beloved Poland Spring water-filled lake. Here’s a quick list of the many ways campers and staff utilize our lake:

    -swimming (lessons and just for fun)

    -sailing

    -kayaking

    -windsurfing

    -canoeing

    -relaxing on the dock

    -water sports (water polo, water basketball)

    -brand new giant inflatable waterslide

    -water trampoline

    -fishing

    -snorkeling

    -free swim and water games

    -special events like luau closing ceremonies

    -banana boating/tubing

    (note: waterskiing is offered on a larger lake just five minutes down the road)

    In order to make sure we can provide all these fun activities, we have invested in waterfront upgrades each year. The giant waterslide is our most recent purchase and has been a true hit with everyone. We also purchased a whole new stock of life jackets, keeping camper safety our number one priority. Overseeing our waterfront activities are our Waterfront Directors, Ben and Emma, and their staff of highly qualified lifeguards.

    Here’s a photo tour of the lake and waterfront:
