Family Sponsorship Program

Camp Sunshine's Family Sponsorship Program brings families of children battling life-threatening illnesses together in a supportive and healing environment, where families can re-group and re-energize. At Camp Sunshine, every member of the family is given attention, not just the sick child. It's also a place where families who feel isolated in their battles can meet other families who can identify with each other's illness related emotional, physical and financial issues. Life-threatening illnesses can wreak havoc on the family unit, and can result in serious long-term damage to the family and each family member. By bringing families together and connecting them with others like them, Camp Sunshine provides the support that these families desperately need and truly deserve.
