Shining Stars Network, a new nonprofit which shines the spotlight on the special needs community, announces the opening of their first ever special needs performing arts camp.  “Camp Shine” is an expansion of the talent shows “Shining Stars of Cranford”, where Cranford’s talented special needs students have performed to over 3500 people over the last six years and raised over $25,000 for organizations serving those with developmental disabilities. Camp Shine takes place from August 21 – September 1 and will culminate with a special performance giving each camper a chance to shine! Camp Shine is open to people with special needs ages 10 and older. To apply, visit or email
