75th Anniversary Alumni and Family Camp

Celebrating 75 Seasons of Blue Star Magic

Memorial Day Weekend
Friday, May 27 – Monday, May 30


We can’t wait to share this celebration of 75 Seasons of Blue Star Magic with camp alums and BSC families! Join us at Blue Star Memorial Day Weekend to experience all of the fun that camp has to offer…explore the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, experience the joy and fun of camp life, and make memories that will last your family a lifetime!

It’s a Wonder-full day at Blue Star

The days will be filled with exciting Blue Star activities, special programs and evening events. Each family will be able to customize their daily schedule based on your preferences, and there may be times where multiple families attend the same activities simultaneously with the whole group. Starting with Shabbat on Friday night and ending with brunch on Monday, each day will provide opportunities for fun, excitement, exploration and R&R!

Health & Safety Considerations regarding COVID-19

  • Blue Star’s 75th Anniversary Alumni + Family Camp will be operating in compliance with the health and safety guidelines provided to us by our long-time medical team as well as the CDC, NCDHHS, AAP and the American Camp Association. Should we not be able to operate, we will communicate with you in real time and full refunds will be issued.
  • Covid-19 vaccinations (by current CDC definition of fully vaccinated at the time) will be required to attend Family Camp for those who are eligible. We will share any updates to vaccine/screening requirements for children who are not yet eligible to be vaccinated. Having our entire community vaccinated against Covid-19 will allow for the 75th celebration weekend to run as safely as possible.
  • Be prepared for pre-camp Covid-19 screenings! More information will follow in the weeks leading up to the start of Family Camp.
  • We will continue to monitor the fluid state of the pandemic to adapt any policies and procedures as needed.
