Welcome to All Star I: July 2 – 9, 2016

This summer chairs Steve and Cyndy Parr bring us: 

Extraterrestrial Geology:

Exploring Our Solar System from the Moon to Pluto

Speaker: Bob Pappalardo - Project Scientist for NASA’s recently announced spacecraft mission to Jupiter’s ocean moon Europa.

This will be a full week of exploration: whether in the night sky, the outer reaches of your imagination, or a new activity. Create space-themed art projects in the Art Barn. Join our family-friendly Star Wars™/Star Trek™/Comic Con(R) Cantina; you never know who will show up in an intergalactic dive bar!

All Star 1 is a family conference that emphasizes intellectual, musical, and artistic pursuits with lots of time for inter-generational fun. We have many multi-generational families who return year after year, but always welcome new people to our one week conference in July on Star Island in New Hampshire.

A day at All Star I starts with a polar bear dip (fortunately optional) and ends with evening chapel often followed by some late night music. In between, are the morning lecture on the week’s topic, morning and afternoon children’s programs, talks-on-the-rocks, art on the porch or in the barn, and plenty of time for chatting in the rocking chairs on the porch and quiet time on the rocks. However, while the day is full of activities, what and how much you chose to do is up to you.

The real strength of our conference is our children’s program. Each morning and afternoon all kids up to high school seniors gather on the front steps and then head off to their groups which start with the babies (called Nestlings) and generally span about two grades. Many activities revolve around the kids such as our bonfire, 4th of July games, and ever popular Great People Hunt.
