Camp Starfish

YMCA is dedicated to fulfilling its commitment to youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.  To achieve this promise to the youth of our community the YMCA has dedicated its Strong Kids Campaign Resources as well as community partners and generous funding donations to Camp STARFISH.  Camp STARFISH addresses summer learning loss, childhood health, obesity and unintentional drowning’s. Campers enjoy art, bicycle education, cooking, engineering, working with the YMCA Kingston Farm Project, math, movement, reading, science, social emotional learning, swimming (in our newly renovated pool!), writers workshop, and more!

Thanks also to the United Way of Ulster County, United Health Care, ShopRite, Adam’s, Boices, and the Kingston City School district for making this program possible.

The goal at Camp Starfish is to develop healthy campers through active play and nutritional education.  We strongly promote creativity through interactions with our community.  We can all feel proud of what our Y is doing for these children.  In twenty years these kids might be taking care of us, so it is very important that we give them the tools and skills needed to excel in school and to develop into responsible caring adults.
