Camp Sunshine

Camp Sunshine provides respite, support, joy, and hope to children with life-threatening illnesses and their immediate families from around the world through the various stages of their journeys. The year-round program is free of charge to all families, and includes 24-hour onsite medical and psychosocial support. Every two years, Camp Sunshine hosts “Shwachman-Dimanond Syndrome” week. Stay tuned for the 2016 camp dates (to be announced in Spring 2016).
