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! Learn more!
