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

Rating: 5 stars  

I became a volunteer at Camp Sunshine in 2014, and I admit, I was a reluctant volunteer. I didn't know what to expect or what would be expected of me.
Fast forward to 2020--I am no longer a reluctant volunteer but an eager volunteer--trying to go as often as I can.
Over the years, I met families struggling with managing their child's medications and daily life, families who are trying to reconcile the loss of a child , and through it all they find support or solace from others experiencing the same. Volunteers make a difference providing respite so parents can get away from their routines and bond with other families or just to be able to take a deep breath.
I have made friendships that will last my lifetime. Some of those friends are families, volunteers and staff at Camp Sunshine.
I am grateful to have been urged by my daughter to volunteer at this wonderful place of hope and healing.
Coming away from a session at Camp, I feel like a much better person.
