Review for Camp Sunshine at Sebago Lake Inc, Casco, ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have volunteered at Camp Sunshine for the past 12 years. Volunteering during different weeks and weekends in different areas. The opportunity that Camp Sunshine gives to families going through a difficult medical issue with their child is awesome. To bring fun, joy, knowledge, sharing etc, to parents and children has brought joy to my life each time I volunteered. Each week or weekend is special for all involved and have special memories. Some of my favorite memories are:
1). The smiling face of a 6 year old making a craft for their parent or sibling.
2).The toddlers having a "parade" with Musical instruments.
3). The teens winning the "Love Cup"
4). The ice cream soda dessert and little kids watching the foam rise.
One can go on and on about the wonderful loving experience Camp Sunshine families and volunteers provides. It surely is a special place!

Rating: 5 stars  

I started volunteering at Camp Sunshine 10 years ago as a chaperone for our high school group. I have bought about a dozen students each year to volunteer each summer at Camp Sunshine. I have also recruited my husband to volunteer. We have even volunteered on other weeks and weekends without having to chaperone my high school students because we believe in the program that Camp Sunshine offers the families in attendance. The connections you make with the families, other volunteers, and Camp staff are special.

Rating: 5 stars  

The support of the Camp program resources assists volunteers in offering the most outstanding camp experience for the children and their families. I have volunteered each year since 2004 and plan on continuing. Besides volunteering with my husband many camp sessions I bring 10-12 high school students to volunteer as well. The opportunity to give back and make a difference in the campers and their families lives is so rewarding!
