Camp Sunshine, founded in 1960, is a summer recreational program for children and young adults with multiple disabilities. The Camp is open each summer for 9 weeks (Mon. - Fri., 9:00 A.M.-3:30 P.M.) beginning the third Monday in June and running through the third Friday in August. Camp Sunshine is unique among its peers because of its corps of volunteers who provide one-on-one care to its campers. Each volunteer has the opportunity to assist one camper in various camp activities throughout the day. Campers participate in daily Arts & Crafts and sports activities, go swimming twice during each day in our adapted, onsite heated swimming pool, and take field trips to places such as Liberty Science Center. While still maintaining its rustic charm, our newly-renovated, state-of-the-art facility is fully equipped for the needs of our campers, with a playroom/video center, Windows computer network, and over 2000 sq. ft. of air conditioned activity space. Our professional staff and volunteers ensure that our campers get the fullest enjoyment from the opportunities afforded at Camp Sunshine.
