What is Camp Sunshine?

Camp Sunshine offers people ages 12 – 50 with mild to moderate cognitive impairments the opportunity to attend summer camp in a safe, caring and inclusive environment. There is joyful spirit about Camp Sunshine that is transformative for every person who attends – whether you’re a camper, counselor or volunteer. We promote through words and actions an atmosphere that honors all people with total acceptance and unconditional love.

We invite you to become a part of Camp Sunshine as a camper, counselor, volunteer, or financial supporter. There is something sacred about being part of a group where everyone is loved and accepted “just the way they are.” It is a place for campers to feel included, to learn from others and grow in friendship. It is a place for volunteers to receive as much as they give and to learn as much as they teach. Most of all, we have fun! See what MLive, WoodTV, and WOTV for Women saw in 2014, or explore our website to learn more!


This is an opportunity provided by Michigan Council for Exceptional Children for students to apply for funding (up to $250) to attend a summer camp in Michigan. These camperships are open to students with an active IEP, in need of financial support, and would otherwise not have an opportunity for a summer camp experience. Applications must be postmarked by March, 16 2016. Click here to learn more!
