North Star Reach Camp Opens

It started as a dream to build a barrier-free, cost-free camp for children with serious health challenges, and now it's a reality.

The nonprofit North Star Reach celebrated the opening of its new 105-acre home in Pinckney over the weekend, and will serve nearly 300 children -- mostly referred by local hospitals -- before summer's end. 

Ami Walsh, the camp's communications director, visited the Fox2 Studios Sunday to discuss the celebration and help increase awareness for the program and local need for continued support.
