Would you like to help Camp Sonshine as we help kids be successful in the business of growing up? We have many opportunities for parents and friends to get involved.

Host Homes

Our summer staff come from all over the United States and around the world, sacrificing the comforts of home and the freedom of their summer in order to invest into the lives of children and teens.

In order to keep our costs down, we depend on the generosity of our Camp families and friends who are willing to open up their homes to provide a place for one of our summer camp counselors to sleep and get ready in the morning. Counselors will also need a space in the freezer/refrigerator and cabinet/pantry to store a few food items.

Note: You are not responsible for their meals, transportation, cleaning up after them, or enforcing any of camp’s guidelines or rules.

Thank you for considering to being part of the Camp Sonshine family in this act of service. If you would like to receive more information about this program, please call Parent Services at (301) 989-CAMP.

Site Work Days

It takes an army to make sure our camp grounds look their best. We have monthly workdays where full-time camp staff get out (with their old clothes on) to do some needed maintenance and facility improvements.

If you would like to join us for the day (or part of the day), or donate building/landscaping supplies, please call Parent Services for more details.

Note: Landscaping skills and experience is not required.

Scholarship Donations

Please consider helping us reach our goal of raising $20,000 to help less fortunate families send their children to Camp.
