Camp Sunshine

In Feb 2022, we held our sixth Zoom giving event with members. Together we raised over $3,700!   
 

Three great charities were nominated by meeting attendees.
 

  • Camp Sunshine, nominated by Anne Howley, provides retreats combining respite, recreation and support, while enabling hope and promoting joy, for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families through the various stages of a child’s illness.
     

  • Comfort Zone Camp, nominated by Nicole Perlman, provides a fun and safe camp experience for children who have suffered the death of a parent, sibling, legal guardian, or significant person.
     

  • Family Health Project, nominated by Kyra Grenier, offers help to new mothers and their babies facing life without enough money.  
     

After a great discussion, Camp Sunshine was selected to receive our collective donation. We were inspired by this wonderful charity.

Camp Sunshine's program is offered year-round and has the distinction of having been designed to serve the entire family in a retreat model. The program is free of charge to families and includes on-site medical support. A bereavement session is also offered for families who have experienced the death of a child from a supported illness.
