GIVE TO LINCOLN DAY
Thursday, May 31, 2018
Over the past year, Camp Sonshine has paid off the Barn & Pool Project, built an Aerial Park at Camp Solaris, and seen much growth in many areas! We are excited to announce a two-phase plan for the future of Camp Sonshine as we plan for longevity in our mission of Making Memories, Changing Lives.
Phase One: A Permanent Solution To Storm Damage
The White Tent, a space that so powerfully instructs campers in navigating the storms in their lives, was completely destroyed in a powerful storm earlier this fall. In the early morning hours of Sunday, August 20, high winds hit Camp Sonshine causing a range of damages including the total destruction of the white tent, the second of its kind to have been destroyed by a violent storm in recent years.
Camp Sonshine has decided that it is time to put up something more permanent that will last for years – purposefully taking care of the amazing children and families we serve. The Camp Sonshine board has recently voted and approved a two-phase plan to address our needs. The first step is to build a permanent pavilion where the old white tent stood. This open-air pavilion will provide a shaded, outdoor space to be enjoyed by campers for years to come.
Phase Two: Camp Sonshine Activity Center
Upon completion of the pavilion, we will be focusing our efforts on plans for a Camp Sonshine Activity Center. This large activity structure will provide space for ministry expansion with athletic courts, climbing activities, gathering spaces for groups, and a larger assembly area, which will better accommodate growing camp programs in the future. Stay tuned for more information on this project!
We desire that every child that wants to come to camp gets the opportunity. That is why each year Camp Sonshine families and friends donate to our scholarship program.
