Intense League Action on Alumni Field

Alumni. Elite. Varsity. Main. Clinic. To veteran Starlighters, these are well known terms. Of course, these are the names of the Starlight athletic fields. For those who are new to Starlight, however, figuring out which field is which can be a bit tricky—especially with the latest addition to the Starlight athletic facilities, Elite Field. So here’s a breakdown of the Starlight athletic fields and just what sport(s) we play on them.

Alumni Field: Alumni Field is Camp Starlight’s main soccer field (or collection

of fields, rather). We do a lot of other things on Alumni Field too. Sometimes we hold evening activities there. We’ve also had our anniversary party on Alumni Field and, of course, plenty of SFL action takes place there.

Main Field: Main Field is the home of Starlight Baseball. Starlighters hit plenty

of homeruns on the Main Field.

Clinic Field: The Clinic Field is so called because it’s in front of the clinic. Clinic Field is a multi-purpose field on which everything

from soccer to decathlon activities are played. Clinic Field is also a special place at camp because it’s where all of the campers first step off the buses on arrival day.

Varsity Field: Varsity Field was previously the sole Lacrosse Field. Now it’s

exclusively the Girls Lacrosse Field.

Elite Field: Last, but certainly not least, we’re proud to debut Elite Field this summer. Elite Field will add an additional field to our ever growing and extremely popular Lacrosse program. Right next to Elite Field is also our new flag football field.

And that’s which field is which!

Sunshine Not Required

Even though it never officially rains at camp, every now and then we do get thrown a curveball in the form of water falling from the sky.  One might assume that such a day might not be one of the best for campers or staff, but the truth is that the fun doesn’t stop just because it’s a little wet outside.  In fact, wet days are often filled with special activities like movies, the “man cave”, cooking, and creative options.  The Camp Starlight campus also has sufficient enough indoor space that we can sometimes just move outdoor activities inside and continue on with them as usual.  Of course, we have amazing dance and fitness studios that are already indoors, along with one of the most impressive gymnastics facilities in Wayne County, video production and robotics areas, a covered arena, and a Field House with a full basketball court.  Campers enjoy spending extended periods of time with their bunkmates and counselors and certainly don’t let a sprinkle or two get the best of an otherwise great day!
