Review for Camp Sunshine at Sebago Lake Inc, Casco, ME, USA
Camp Sunshine is a truly incredible place where everyone feels welcome. On the last day of camp, it is not unusual to see babies and teenagers alike crying because they don't want to leave their "home." For these campers, Camp Sunshine is their "safe place"; for a moment, they get to "fit in" and people just "get them." For once, it's kind of cool to be the person who has a life threatening illness. For their siblings and their parents, it's more of the same. Camp Sunshine provides them a place to meet people who truly understand what they go through day in and day out. They can swap stories, tips, advice, and give and receive love. Camp Sunshine allows these families a chance to get away, be a family, and be with people who understand. Since Camp Sunshine is free for those attending and volunteering, it also provides a vacation to those who are financially strapped by medical bills. It is a magical, life giving place.
