Greetings from all of us here at Camp Sonshine,
Like many of you, we continue to follow the developments concerning COVID-19 and are addressing the implications for Camp Sonshine, both in the coming weeks and possibly for the summer camp season.
The health and wellbeing of our campers and staff is our number one priority and we will make decisions concerning the summer that are in the best interest of our campers. With the first day of camp being over 2 months away, we are planning to continue having camp this summer and are preparing for another unforgettable season! If there are any changes to this, we will let all of our campers and their families know as soon as possible.
Activities For Campers & Families
Remember that there are tremendous health benefits for kids to play outside, remain active and be in community with positive friends. In the summertime, Camp Sonshine combines all of these into one great experience and we look forward to serving you then. For the time being, during this uncertain time of limited personal contact, we are excited to serve as a resource for families by providing a variety of virtual activities, games, and diversions for your kids as they spend more time at home.
Due to restrictions placed on public gatherings of more than 10 individuals, we are limited in our ability to provide programs such as HangTime and other gatherings. We do remain committed to serving families in whatever ways we are able. The current situation is impacting people in different ways so please reach out to us if your family has any special needs or if your child/teen needs someone to talk to.
Together we are treading through uncharted territories, but how timely for us to have just walked through a summer where our focus and theme was BRAVE. During this season of uncertainty, we encourage everyone with the words of Paul to not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, share your requests with God and His peace, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ.
So as we take heart, we will carefully and continually monitor information and recommendations by the CDC, the Christian Camp & Conference Association and local officials to ensure we are on top of the newest developments and recommendations.
In His Peace,
Jeff Keiser, Executive Director
