Review for Camp Sunshine at Sebago Lake Inc, Casco, ME, USA
We are the parents of three children; tweleve, ten and seven years old . On May 6th 2005 our lives were forever changed when our 18 month old (now ten years old), was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL). On this journey we have certainly learned some valuable life lessons, and got a serious education in blood related cancers and the associated treatments. Through all our ups and downs, we can truly say that we’ve been blessed to meet quite a few wonderful people. One of our highlights has been our visits to Camp Sunshine, which continues to exceed our expectations.
The Staff of Camp Sunshine always prepares unforgettable experiences, from the games to the Group Sessions. Their meticulous planning, efforts and hard work is evident and truly appreciated. The entire Camp Sunshine facility is absolutely amazing! The Volunteers, who gave of themselves, their selflessness, support, love and open hearts could never be re-paid. They gave so much to us and to our children. The kitchen staff prepared absolutely delicious meals for us. Visiting Camp Sunshine afforded us the opportunity to meet people that we may have never met. It provided us with much needed parental group therapy, and the opportunity to enjoy life to the fullest, without worry, for a few days. It is our belief that we have made some bonds with Our Fellow Sunshine Parents and their families; whose warmth and kindness allowed us to share our story, as well as listen to theirs. There is amazing comfort and extra strength that comes from knowing that we are not alone on this journey. And as it continues, we trust that these bonds will last a lifetime.
These experiences could not have been possible without Camp Sunshine. The words “Thank You” almost do not seem to be enough to truly express our heartfelt gratitude for Camp Sunshine. Camp Sunshine is truly like nothing else!
Go Camp Sunshine!!!
