PRAIRIE STAR DISTRICT ARCHIVES
Because Prairie Star District has become part of MidAmerica Region, this page has been archived as of July 15, 2013, for reference purposes. It will not be updated in the future, and some links may no longer work properly. For more up-to-date information, please visit the Mid America UUA site. Thank you!
Some housing options are included in the StarTrail Fee. Other options have a surcharge or a discount from the StarTrail Fee.
Discounts and surcharges are noted under each option.
At registration you will express your preferences for housing. Camp staff will assign housing early in May to everyone registered by then. After May 15, camp staff will assign remaining housing as registrations are received. Camp staff will try to honor your housing preferences, but it may not be possible because there is limited space in each building. Camp participants will be notified of their assignment and invoiced for fees above the deposit.
Note to families: Each family, including the parents, teens, and children, will be housed together.
