STARFISH Summer Day School Programm

While parents are the primary source of values education and character building, camp offers a great opportunity to reinforce the values that children are already learning at home. Moreover, in the recreational setting that includes competitive sports, performing arts, and day-to-day socialization, children have a unique opportunity to learn, practice and test their "values skills." The STARFISH program not only supports our camp's mission of teaching children the skills of making and keeping friends while building self-esteem; it creates a safe environment that makes accomplishing that mission possible. Our STARFISH program, which assists in teaching, promoting, recognizing and rewarding these values has become an established measure in camping excellence.

During the week campers and staff alike can earn a raffle ticket for behaviors that demonstrate any of the STARFISH values. At our weekly all camp assembly several raffles are selected and campers and staff are called to the stage to be recognized. STARFISH certificates are awarded weekly and the names of each camper earning an award are posted on our "Wall of Fame."
