THE STORY:

For 15 years, hundreds of deserving kids from New England and New York City have attended this 10 day overnight camp, at no cost to their families, a policy to which we are deeply committed. WE RELY 100% ON THE GENEROSITY OF OUR DONORS WHO GIVE IN AMOUNTS RANGING FROM $25 TO $10,000. 

"I just want to give a big thank you for letting me come to this camp! You have no idea how much this camp has changed me and made me feel better about myself, I can never say thank you enough for that. I didn't realize a place so perfect existed and It's a miracle that I was able to go!"

“Summer Stars, a place for a teenager like me eager for diversity, knowledge, and immense fun. For lack of better words a place easily compared to heaven. It has also been an escape for the problems and struggles we as children of this era face. Judgement, criticism, bullying, loneliness. All these feelings and actions are non existent at Summer Stars. Summer stars has made me comfortable in my skin and open minded to the fact that there is a place some where better than where I'm raised where fitting in is your only choice. Summer stars taught me that being different is far from a crime. If I had the chance to come back to summer stars no words in the Webster dictionary could describe how ecstatic I’d be."


SUMMER STARS CAMP FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS IS DEVOTED TO PROVIDING ECONOMICALLY DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN, AGES 12 - 17, WITH AN OPPORTUNITY TO DISCOVER THEMSELVES AND THEIR POTENTIAL THROUGH THE PERFORMING ARTS.

What makes this opportunity so valuable is that Summer Stars provides these children not only a respite from the realities of life, but a life-changing experience. By meeting other kids with the same interests, by working with a caring staff that holds them to the highest standards, they learn that working hard makes it possible for them to get places they never thought possible. They take these standards, this work ethic, and a renewed sense of self-worth into all facets of their lives.
