  • Our family loves this camp! We have sent our son and grandsons to the camp for two years and they are now 10 - 13 years old. All the boys loved the experience, and they want to repeat it!

  • Thank you for keeping my children happy and safe during the summer!

  • This was an amazing experience for my child. The staff kept the best attitudes, cared so much for my child and it was like nothing else I have ever seen. I am thrilled to have found this camp.

  • Camp Sonshine is one of those life experiences that I am proud to provide to my children. The children are the proof that Camp Sonshine is all that the literature says it is!

  • We were very pleased with the quality of counselors, fun programs, information provided ahead of time and transportation options. The kids definitely want to return next year!

  • Both my kids went to Camp Sonshine for many years. One continued on as a counselor in training. She loved it so much she did camp one session and work another! The staff is more dedicated then many of your other local camps. They truly want to be there encouraging your kids!

  • Camp Sonshine is a fantastic place! I am continually impressed with how smoothly things run and the welcoming smiles and waves that brighten my day each time I drive on campus.

  • I feel comfortable knowing that my kids are in such a supportive environment. The counselors are always happy and young at heart and are such great role models for my kids!

  • Thank you once again for another great summer experience. The best camp ever, hands down!
