2022 Star Island Update

Join our multi-generational conference with morning youth (ages 6-16) programming, theme talks and workshops, plus activities that explore the island, the world and ourselves: birdwatching, kayaking, yoga, art and music plus much more. Our speakers will be composer and performer Kemp Harris and University of Maryland professor Jeffrey Halverson, meteorology expert for the Washington Post. Dr. Halverson has worked with NASA and the National Hurricane Center to build a better understanding of extreme weather and climate change. Together, they will inspire us, through talks and storytelling, to share ideas for weathering our earth’s and life’s changes. Even with all these activities, there will be plenty of time for quiet reflection and time to explore and appreciate the beauty and tranquility of Star Island.


Youth Programming

Led by a team of creative artists, young people from 6-16 will gather in a multi-age group to express themselves through drama, learn to appreciate the island’s bountiful natural resources and build their own caring community.
