This year’s Kaiser Permanente Thrive Award Winner, Camp RicStar explores the history and profound impact of a one-of-a-kind camp for people with disabilities, the Eric ‘RicStar’ Winter Music Therapy Camp. On the occasion of its 20th anniversary, we follow eight spirited campers who embrace being uninhibited as they sing, dance, create, connect, and discover new ways to express themselves. Finally, they perform at the “Be-a-Star Showcase,” where every level of ability is included and celebrated center stage.

Uplifting and inspirational, Camp RicStar is a testimony to the power of art, to the human spirt, and to the kindness, support, and love we have to show one another.
