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

I am writing to let you know that my daughter thoroughly enjoyed her camp experience last week! Jane is a “slow-to-warm-up” kind of child, so it was especially wonderful to see her positively beaming at the end of each day and telling us all about her camp experiences, singing songs, and showing us her projects each evening. My husband and I are thankful to her counselors and to all of the staff for making it such a great week for her!
