It costs over $5000 for one child to attend Starfish becuase of the intensive, therapeutic and individualized support we provide each camper and his/her family. Most of our campers receive "camperships" to reduce that cost directly from Starfish. What Starfish gives a child literally can change their life and the lives of their family members. 
There are so many ways to help! We encourage you to get involved and thank you in advance for joining us on this amazing journey of changing lives!
Starfish will always be my "charity of choice".  They have given to me in countless ways over the years.  It has also been great to see them grow into a thriving organization that supports a year-round staff, owns their own property and grows their programs every year.   -Kerry, mom of a 2006-2010 Starfish camper
I hope you will join me in supporting Camp Starfish. It brightens my year to know that this Camp is available to childen with emotional, behavioral, and learning problems.  But it needs our support to make it possible.  -Board Member
