Review for Camp Starfish Inc, Stow, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Camp starfish was a life saver for our family. Our daughter had many social, emotional issues and had a really hard time coping. Camp starfish was the only place she felt accepted and centered. The three weeks she spent every summer there was a wonderful retreat for her and for our whole family. She came back happy and had the coping tools to be successful at home. Eventually we adopted our son who had experienced serious trauma in his previous life. He thrived at camp starfish and was so happy there. The staff never flinched with his behaviors. Everyone treated my kids with kindness and caring thoughtfulness. The communication flow back home was amazing. I consider Camp Starfish our family’s saving grace!!

Review for Camp Starfish Inc, Stow, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Our daughter struggled with PTSD, anxiety and social issues. She spent 4 summers at camp starfish. She blossomed under the guidance of the wonderful caring and patient staff. She so looked forward to her three weeks there and we looked forward to the respite and the changed child we would get back. Our foster son spent two summers there he had a wonderful positive experience finding acceptance and understanding for his difficulties and thrived. I don't think we would have survived our parenting challenges without the promise of the children attending camp starfish!!

Review for Camp Starfish Inc, Stow, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Two of our adopted children suffer from ptsd, social and emotional issues. Camp Starfish is our light in the sometimes dark tunnel of challenges. The kids go there and have fun , gain life skills and just get to feel like "regular" kids for three weeks. Parenting children with challenging behaviors is exhausting and frustrating at times so it gives us three weeks to refill our patience and regain perspective. The staff is wonderful and caring. I don't know how we would get through our year without the promise camp starfish brings us!!
