On the Island

End-of-season Special Offers Available

Star Island is pleased to announce three special offers for the end of the season!

30% Discount for Historic Star and LGBTQ

Star Island’s two newest conferences, Historic Star and LGBTQ Family and Friends, offer everyone a 30% discount on room and board. Held August 27 to September 2, both conferences have options for three- and six-nights and programs for adults, families, and children.

Historic Star has something for everyone: Writing, photography, scrapbooking, a recreation of Celia Thaxter’s salon, Isles of Shoals archaeology finds, contra dancing and more.

The LGBTQ conference welcomes single LGBTQ people, friends and relatives; couples; families with gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender members. Themes and activities weave together talks on LGBTQ advocacy, workshops (poetry, story-writing, drumming and yoga), and some good old-fashioned fun.

Hurricane Earl’s Discount for Laity and Pelican Reunion Conferences

Star Island reopened on the Sunday of Labor Day Weekend last year after brief closure due to threats from Hurricane Earl. Guests attending Conference of the Laity and Pel Reunion had to leave the island along with most of the staff. This year Star Island offers a 10% discount for room and board to everyone who attends Laity or Pel Reunion, Friday, Sept. 2 or Saturday, Sept. 3 to Monday, Sept. 5. This 10% discount is in addition to any other discounts (10-10 Bring-A-Friend, scholarships, etc.).

Pel Reunion leadership has graciously opened enrollment to Star Island volunteers. If you have been a volunteer for Star Island, you are invited to attend Pel Reunion, which is held over Labor Day weekend. There are options for attending for two or three days, beginning Friday, September 2 and ending Monday, September 5. Volunteers are eligible for Earl’s 10% discount for room and board for this year’s conference.
