The Camp Starfish Board of Directors is excited to share with the Starfish community that our very own Associate Director, Jamie Mahnken, has accepted the role of Executive Director!   

Jamie first joined the Starfish summer staff in 2010, then the Year-Round team in 2014.
She has been our Camp Director since 2017, and the driving force behind making sure our campers and families have an exceptional experience at Starfish. In addition to her role as Camp Director, Jamie has been second in command at Starfish for many years, supporting the organization's ongoing success.

"Jamie's deep knowledge of Starfish operations and personal connection to the organization, as well as her dynamic leadership style and forward-thinking strategic planning, mean that Starfish will be well positioned for years to come with her at the helm," says Interim Executive Director Emily Golinsky. "I could not be more excited to transition the organization to such a qualified and enthusiastic leader."

Jamie, Emily, and the year-round staff team began that transition work this past fall, engaging actively with the Starfish Board of Directors to ensure a successful and seamless transition. With our winter Weekenders respite programs already full, and a rapidly filling roster of summer camp sessions, 2022 is off to a great start!

Of her new role, Jamie says: "It has been a true privilege to be part of Starfish's growth these past many years, and I'm honored to be leading the organization onwards and upwards. I am looking forward to working with the Board, our staff team, families, campers, donors, friends and the entire Starfish family to continue building a wonderful future for the camp."

Please join us as we welcome Jamie to her new role and usher in the next generation of leadership for Starfish.

Meet Our Year Round Team

We often get asked "what we do" all year-round. It takes a team of dedicated and hard-working individuals to make Starfish run! During the "off-season," the year-round staff spends time fundraising to ensure that each child in need can receive scholarship dollars, hiring our summer team of over 100 young adults, getting to know and enrolling campers for the upcoming summer and working with their families, service providers and schools to ensure a positive transition to camp; and developing new and improved summer and year-round programs. In addition, we run respite weekends and year-round activities.  You can reach us by email or by phone at 978-637-2617 Monday through Friday, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm, all year long. We look forward to hearing from you.
