In 2008, the Minnesota constituency voted a three-phase redevelopment project plan for revitalizing North Star Camp. Phases one and two have been completed (praise God!) and in October the North Star Camp Board received the “go ahead” from the Conference Board of Trustees to immediately begin phase three, called Lift the Lodge. This phase entails demolition of the old lodge, followed by construction of the new facility that will enhance the beauty and functionality of the camp.

After speaking with the North Star Camp Board and the construction company, conference president Justin Lyons said, “We believe that we can have the new lodge finished by the start of camp season next year.”

Elder Lyons also expressed thanks to the conference constituency and the donors for their faithfulness and financial support of this $1.2 million project.
