Camp Starfish

About Camp Starfish

Camp Starfish is a not-for-profit residential camp which serves children between the ages of 6 and 16 who have emotional, behavioral, social and learning challenges. Using a combination of traditional camp programs combined with an industry-unique one-to-one staff to camper ratio, we have created a different kind of place - one that meets the needs of children who have not been successful in other programs. Our campers experience success and fun at camp because of the individualized attention they receive from talented, creative, amazing staff.

Our campers – and staff – live in cabins, eat in the dining hall, swim in the lake, have fun during “free play,” participate in activities together, and build a camp community which is both similar to – and as unique as – other summer camps. The main thing is (as one of our Starfish Tools says), “We Come to Camp to Learn, Grow, and Have Fun.”

“Working with the campers is amazing. The work is difficult, but very rewarding. It is truly "the hardest job you'll ever love," as the directors tell you during training. It helped me to gain professional and personal confidence, get extensive training in how to work with this population of children, and make valuable professional connections. Plus the camp culture and activities are very fun to lead and participate in!”
