Our Impact

Camp Starfish has changed my son in ways I didn’t think were possible. Before this summer, he always seemed uncomfortable in his own skin and didn’t feel confident enough to make friends. But now the fragile and self-secluded boy I raised is gone. The unique program you offer for kids with challenges is amazing.

Random Quote

Cultural Day enables us to reach many camp groups who would have difficulty participating in our arts programming without the Summer Fund’s financial assistance. It also allows us to offer additional weekday show programming over the summer, keeping our staffing and artist roster consistent, active, and productive in the summer months. With the Summer Fund’s help, our outreach is more extensive, and our organization is able to operate at full capacity through summer, when otherwise it would not.
