More about Star Island:

Star Island is one of the nine Isles of Shoals located seven miles off the coast of New Hampshire and Maine. All are welcome to explore the island for a day, enjoy a meal, spend the night, or attend a conference. People of all backgrounds are drawn to Star Island for its recreation, natural beauty, and simplicity.

What keeps people coming back year after year, is the abundance of kindness and community.

Star Island offers all-inclusive programming that focuses on a particular theme or topic such as art, history, ecology, spirituality, and yoga. Star is a place to learn, explore, enjoy the outdoors, and connect with friends both old and new.

During July and August, the programs are family-friendly and multi-generational. There are supervised youth activities, meals together in the dining hall, and plenty of free time to explore the Isles of Shoals, or enjoy kayaking, tennis, and swimming. Guests stay in the rustic and historic Oceanic Hotel and can participate in softball games, chapel services, workshops, and lectures, or simply enjoy the view from a porch rocker.In June and September, the programs are more adult-focused.

Some conferences last a few days, others a week, each with a unique theme or focus. Think of it as vacationing with a purpose! You can enjoy the activities or sit back and take in the island serenity.

No matter who you are or what you’re interested in, Star Island is a beautiful place to be, full of people who care about each other and making the world a better place. For over 100 years, the non-profit Star Island Corporation has hosted conferences put on by dedicated groups of volunteers. Find out for yourself why visiting Star Island is a treasured family tradition for so many, and why guests describe their stay on Star as magical.
