It’s been said that the best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. For us, the second best time is April 27th on Arbor Day! Part of the long-term strategic site plan is to create outdoor spaces that will support the mission of camp. In order to do this, we will need to plant hundreds of trees over the next few years. We are inviting families to sponsor one or more trees at Camp Sonshine. For your convenience, specific trees on our site plan can be order online and delivered to camp. You can then join us on Arbor Day to plant your tree or have one of the camp staff plant it for you. Leave your mark on camp that will last for decades to come!

Camp Sonshine & Camp Solaris Master Site Plan & Long-Term Expansion & Development
Many people don’t realize that we are able to cover all of our operating expenses through camper tuition, which means that 100% of donations can go directly to camper scholarships or to the expansion and development of our site and facilities to accommodate our continually growing enrollment.
Camp Sonshine experienced a major enrollment milestone this summer by surpassing the 2,300 camper mark! This has been our largest camp season ever and we are thrilled to see God use camp to impact the lives of so many kids and teens. In order for us to continue providing a high quality, life-changing program for our current campers, and to prepare for ongoing long term effectiveness, we are working with Fletemeyer & Lee Associates (a firm that specializes in camp planning) to develop a strategic site plan that will help us to grow efficiently and effectively.
Here, you will see the proposed site plans for our two locations. Contact us for more information about how you can be involved in the long-term growth of Camp Sonshine!
