Looking for a way to assist Camp Sonshine as we help kids be successful in the business of growing up? Here are a few service opportunities to consider.

Note: We’re always open to suggestions. If you have an idea that would help us further our mission, please give us a call at (301) 989-CAMP. We’d love to hear from you!

HOST HOMES | SITE WORK DAYS | SCHOLARSHIP DONATIONS | REFERRALS

Host Homes

Our summer staff travel from all over the United States, and the world, often sacrificing modern comforts and summer freedoms, to invest into the lives of our youth. As a ministry, we have committed to providing a safe and clean place for them to stay during the summer. In order to keep Camp affordable, we are constantly seeking ways to keep our costs down. Our Host Homes program is one such way. In order for us to fulfill our commitment, we depend heavily on the generosity of our Camp families and friends.

Required

  • Provide a clean and safe place for a summer camp counselor to sleep and get ready in the morning.
  • Provide a space in the freezer/refrigerator and cabinet/pantry for a few food items.

NOT Required

  1. You are not responsible for providing meals.
  2. You are not responsible for transportation to and from Camp.
  3. You are not responsible for cleaning up after your guest counselor.
  4. You are not responsible for enforcing any of Camp’s rules or guidelines.

Thank you kindly for considering serving in this capacity. If you would like to receive more information about our Host Homes program, please call Parent Services at (301) 989-CAMP.

Site Work Days

It takes an army to make sure our campgrounds look their best. We have monthly work days where full-time camp staff get out (with their old clothes on) to do some needed maintenance and facility improvements. Note: Landscaping skills and experience is not required.

Services Options

  1. Full day services
  2. Half day services
  3. Donate building/landscaping supplies

Thank you kindly for considering serving in this capacity. If you would like to receive more information about our Site Work Days program, please call Parent Services at (301) 989-CAMP.

Scholarship Fund Donations

Turning a child away because of money is something we hope never to do. Learn how you can help give the powerful gift of camp to a child who would not be able to afford it.

Referrals

More than 80% of new families hear about us by word of mouth. Did you know that if you refer a first-time family to Camp you will receive a $30 credit?

Refer as many families as you want as long as your credit amount does not exceed the amount paid for registration for the current year.  Sounds like a great opportunity to me!

NOTE: You will receive your credit within two weeks of the new family registering.

Have questions? Call 301.989.CAMP. We’re happy to help!

“I just LOVE Camp Sonshine! I’ve referred countless friends and neighbors because I feel that every child should experience a place like this.  My kids absolutely adore this place, the counselors, and staff.”
