Connecting to RicStar's Camp

Having fun at RicStar's Camp!

My website is currently undergoing some revisions to better reflect new projects currently in the works. 

Because of that, some current links may not be working correctly. 

RicStar's Camp is one of those links. 

Celebrating 18 years of helping individuals of all ages and disabilities celebrate what they can do through music.

It's pure music magic. 

Thanks for your technological patience.

Jack and I wish you a Happy & Inclusive Valentine's Day!

Whatever challenges your child faces, here is a piece to help everyone get through the day with more joy and less angst.
