StarPower 2023

That’s a Wrap! What an amazing StarPower experience we had this summer! Our campers were fantastic! Collectively we set a creative vision, established goals, worked hard, and played even harder! We couldn’t be prouder of their accomplishments as an artist, playwright, songwriter, and a performer. All 31 of our campers collaborated to create an original musical production! AMAZING! Our final week at StarPower was spent doing all sorts of amazing, fun awesomeness! We rehearsed hard and put the final touches on our spectacular performance. One of the most touching things about this group was the bonds they made and the ongoing support they had for one another. I believe setting our intentions, infusing mindfulness, and making meaningful connections while tapping into our campers’ creativity and passion was key to our READ MORE


StarQuest Rocked It

STARQUEST ROCKED IT! Unbelievable! What an amazing summer we had! In 4 short weeks, camp StarQuest became a home away from home… a place where our campers transformed into rockin’ StarQuest Super Stars! The last week of camp was action-packed! Not only did they perform in an incredible production of THE SPONGEBOB MUSICAL, they also brought the spirit and battled it out in "true camper" style for our Battle of the Stars 2023 color war/Maccabi. I’ve including several videos below of our Battle of the Stars Song Fest, the culmination of our Hollywood Red vs Broadway Blue. Upon the announcement of our winning team this year, Broadway Blue, we all congratulated each other for the camaraderie, sportsmanship, and fun! As always, at StarQuest we concluded with our traditional award ceremony, closing appreciation circle, ice cream, hugs, tears, and so much love! My Camp StarQuest Staff and I have been READ MORE

Finding Inner Balance Through Our Senses

Finding Inner Balance Through Our Senses As a musical theater actor, you are constantly in motion. Whether it’s taking direction, moving to a specific spot-on stage, saying your lines, or singing with the ensemble, actors are always in motion. This week we worked on inner balance, teamwork, and self-love, so that “constant motion” is attainable. Throughout all our speciality activities, acting, voice and dance, and our daily meditation moments, we worked on honing our skills, perking up our senses, and opening ourselves up to our potential and to others! Here's the Inside Scoop The third week of camp is a complete “get grounded” week! Our campers worked on growing their “The SpongeBob Musical” characters while memorizing their lines, blocking, music, and choreography! To complement their hard work, tons of fun was enjoyed through our Camper/Counselor Day, Counselor talent show, READ MORE


Trust, Confidence & Accountability

Trust, Confidence & Accountability I am overwhelmed with how amazing our StarQuest campers are! Their sense of teamwork and loving-kindness towards themselves and one another has really shown through this week. One of the many self-affirming teachable moments we infuse into our StarQuest camp is a daily group affirmation which is randomly chosen by one camper but shared with the entire camp. We start our day off with this tradition along with our award of the day to build the confidence of our inner dialogue and to help us see the light in ourselves and others. This coupled with our overall camp culture is creating our StarQuest magic! The trust they are building in themselves and each other has boosted everyone’s confidence to try new things, make new friends, take creative risks, and has given them the freedom to have fun! One of our camp motto’s this summer is READ MORE

Building Friendships, Dreaming Big

Building Friendships, Dreaming Big We jumped right in and had such an amazing week!! The magic of camp is in the air and the friendships that have formed in just 5 days are amazing to witness! Our first week of StarQuest is very intentional and is spent bonding, creating our camp culture and getting familiar with all that camp StarQuest has to offer – friendships, singing, acting, dancing, bringing out your inner artist, and so much more! At StarQuest we focus a lot of our energy during week one to set the tone that will ensure our campers feel inspired, supported and safe so they are empowered throughout camp, in all activities, to rise to each moment and greet it head on! We encourage our campers to set daily intentions, to try new things and to express themselves fully. We take time for mindfulness meditation, we share our positive READ MORE
