Reviews for Camp Sunshine At Sebago Lake Inc
Camp Sunshine provides a beautiful space and supportive opportunites for families impacted by illness and loss. I have worked with many families that sought refuge at Camp Sunshine and they had only wonderful words to describe their experiences. It was not until I went to Camp Sunshine that I was able to fully appreciate what uniquely special place it is.
