HAPPY FEBRUARY CAMP FAMILY!
As we’ve wrapped up the holiday season, our hearts are full and we are thankful to be back in the swing of things at Camp Sonshine! We’ve continued our planning for an exciting Spring Break Camp and Summer and are currently having a blast in our SHINE After Care and Drop-In Days!
If you have yet to register for the summer, do so now to utilize one of our automated installment plans!
You can register for summer 2024 by logging into your camp account and completing the 2024 application! Registering early allows you to make installment payments (either monthly or bi-weekly) towards your balance to have you paid in full by our payment deadline of April 24th. Our multi-week discount of $25 off each week if you register for 2+ weeks also ends on April 24th, so be sure to register and secure your spot before then!
Spring Break Camp
Is taking place March 25-29th!
SHINE After Care
We still have space in our SHINE After Care Program! We serve students K-5th grade from various schools in our after school program, and have full and half day drop-in opportunities which you do not have to be a regular attendee to register for on days Montgomery County Public Schools are not in session!
Our next two Full Day Drop-In opportunities are on March 1st and April 10th! We’d love to have your student join us!
Please note: for half-day transportation, you must attend a school serviced by Camp Sonshine. For more information regarding this program or the drop-in days, please email us at email@example.com!
In January, our incredible team went to Cape Town, South Africa where they ran a week-long day camp in Maitland Garden Village. The children were able to participate in a range of activities like scratch art, bracelets, bubbles, soccer and the list goes on! The children loved these activities and would often show their appreciation by drawing pictures and giving crafts to our staff! We had the most amazing time and we were able to meet so many people from the village as well as learn so much from the children.

We are looking forward to our upcoming GO trip to Guatemala in March.
