Teen adventure week is an opportunity for teen-aged campers to experience all of the fun of a traditional Starfish experience in addition to daily offsite adventures! The waterfront will be open all week for swimming, boating and beach fun, and campers will also have opportunities to participate in other camp activities like arts and crafts, sports, and campfires.
Additionally, Teen Adventure Week campers will go on daily off-site field trips to fun locations like an amusement park and adventure course. The program takes place in the Crescent Lodge, which offers dorm-style accommodations, dining space, and recreation room.
There is an intentional focus on keeping the structure and expectations familiar and on-par with our other respite programs. To that end, Teen Adventure Week participants will have limited, supervised time to use their electronics during daily optional “technology time” in the evenings.
Teen Adventure Week is limited to 12 participants. To be enrolled, campers must be able to meet the behavioral expectations specific to Starfish respite programming. The ratio for Teen Adventure Week is 1:3, which is plenty of staff for engagement and supervision, though campers do also need to be able to participate safely and appropriately within camp expectations and boundaries without consistent 1:1 support.

“My camper loved the respite weekends in the winter and was really excited to meet up with old friends in a familiar setting during the summer.”
