Review for Camp Sunshine at Sebago Lake Inc, Casco, ME, USA
August 2018, was the first summer my family has been to Camp
Sunshine. It was exactly what my family and I needed. The way they have camp set up and the activities they arrange, are all just so wonderful. Structured but flexible routines so all you have to do is show up, eat and have fun. Parents get to break off and do activities as a couple, reminding you both why your such a good team together. The kids, especially the siblings, get to break out and just be themselves not the brother/sister of the cancer kid. And then there is your cancer kid. They get to forget about their cancer for a moment and interact with kids and play games. These kids spend so much time in hospitals and around doctors and nurses that I think sometimes people forget that they are doing all of that instead of creating friendships at school, joining sports and learning to play well with others. This is their chance to do all of that in a safe space with caring people that understand. Those people, volunteers, are full of heart and have either walked in our shoes or been affected in some way by disease. They give of their time, energy and support because they know without it things could look a lot less sunny for the kids and the parents. Until there is a cure I'm so thankful for organizations like this one that support the body, mind and spirit of the entire family unit.
