HomeOur ProgramCrescent

Our Crescent camps are so named because they are based mainly out of the beautiful Crescent Beach area of camp. In September of 2017, Starfish completed brand-new construction of a retreat & conference center-style lodge (“Crescent Lodge”) that overlooks a swim/boating beach and houses up to 40 individuals in modern dorm-style accommodations with indoor bathrooms, electricity, and air conditioning. The Lodge features its own dining room and kitchen, play spaces, and outdoor exploration area, including a field for sports and games. During the summer, it will be “home base” for our short-term specialty camps. The staff ratio and age groups of these programs vary.

Crescent camp programs include:
