Fabulous summer camp! Definitely coming back this year and next and the year after!!!

Janis B.Forest Hills,NY

“This camp is extraordinary, staffed by a team of compassionate, wise and generous people.”

Lori KRego Park, NY

My son absolutely loves WorldPlay/Starchild Camps!  He’s engaged and excited everyday! The team is top notch and extremely dedicated to the kids & their jobs! Enrolling for summer camp, at my sons request! Nothing more comforting then your child feeling safe & happy when they are outside your home!

Debbie F.Kew Gardens, NY

“This was her first time attending a Starchild camp and she had a wonderful experience. She had excellent counselors, a variety of experiences, and was able to try new things. Each day she came home happy, confident, and full of amazing stories.”

David R.Flushing, NY

Kelli and her team are so wonderful with the kids. She plans out such great activities for them, both fun and educational. See you next summer!

Lance G.Douglaston, NY

“My son has had a terrific experience at Starchild Camp. This is his third summer attending. Occasionally, I send him to another camp for a week or two just to mix things up; he always comes home and says, “It’s good, but Starchild is better.”
