Welcome to session 2 everybody!!!!

    It’s been an exciting couple of days at North Star…let’s recap.

    Saturday: We (tearfully) said goodbye to some campers but (cheerfully) welcomed several more. Shout-out to the Boston-Logan counselor crew for successfully dropping off and picking up everyone who needed to be!

    Sunday: Even more campers arrived! It was overall a chaotic and exciting and overwhelming day.

    Monday: At last, we officially kicked off second session with Opening Campfire Monday night!

    I’ve seen plenty of opening campfires at North Star in my day and I must admit that this was the best I’ve ever seen. The talent has been described as unreal. Each act was followed by a well-deserved standing ovation and thunderous applause.

    We had a surprise guest during Amy’s speech (it was a snake. heh heh).

    I was moved almost to tears on multiple occasions (sometimes tears of laughter, thanks to Jake, Jesse, Noah, and David’s acoustic version of “Solja Boy.” lol).

    Needless to say, it was an appropriate way to begin session two (for those of you who don’t know, this is the largest session North Star has ever seen. Dinners are reaching new decibels and breaking all sorts of records as far as volume is concerned).

    Welcome to Session Two!!!!
