Each night is themed so the kids have something to look forward to and there is a song that we all sing (and perform) to start the festivities. The camp provides activities for children of all ages, ensuring that no one will get bored. One thing I really liked about the camp was the support that was also provided for the adults. I was assigned as an adult counselor. The parents participated in silly games that made them all laugh and help them to momentarily forget about the illnesses that their children were fighting. Daily group counseling was also a part of the schedule and I think it really helped the parents to know that they were not alone. Daily meals were provided and volunteers sat along with the families allowing us all to create a bond, to get to know one another and just make new friends. I could really tell that the staff at Camp Sunshine were extremely passionate about their cause. They did not let you believe for a second that they did not want to be a part of this. The support that they provided to the parents, to the children, the attention to detail to the facility in ensuring that the children were safe and did not lack in anything that they might have needed was absolutely admirable. The environment bred support and love - I really can't wait to go back soon!
