STARFISH Values Program


It’s been said that “teaching kids to count isn’t nearly as important as teaching them what counts.” At Tyler Hill, we teach children important life lessons that the traditional academic environment just isn’t designed to handle. STARFISH is the perfect launching pad for us to do exactly that:


Every Friday evening we gather as a full camp at our lakeside outdoor “CAMPitheatre” for our STARFISH ceremony. Campers volunteer each week to share their experiences and thoughts on that week’s value, including how Tyler Hill has impacted their lives. We then sing traditional camp songs and our Head Counselors give out weekly camper STARFISH awards. If you ask our campers, they’ll tell you that the STARFISH award means the world to them, and that our STARFISH program helps to define summers at THC — and keeps them on track during the months that they’re away from camp.
