Star Island Summer Opportunities

Star Island welcomes you from June thru September! The non-profit has hosted conferences for over a century. Come for a day, an overnight or one of 38 different themed conferences this year. A Chautauqua-like experience, a conference on the Island could be arts, music, religion and science, international affairs, natural or New England history,  yoga or more! Each conference chooses their own important, timely theme.

Summer conferences are great for a family vacation (even a reunion), with compelling programming for both adults and children. Quieter May, June and September conferences are enjoyed by singles and small groups, though children may attend.

if you want a sample of the Star experience, consider coming on your own, as a “Personal Retreater” to enjoy island life. Some conferences even let you sample their events!

Go to for details, including a financial grant process.  There is a lot of information, so feel free to contact Brenda  ( or your own Star Island Ambassador, Jean Stefanik , if you’d  like to talk to an “Old Shoaler” about possibly becoming a Shoaler yourself!

If you’ve already experienced the island before, it’s time to be thinking …….”You will come back”!!
