Camp Sessions at Camp Henry and Camp Blodgett
Camp Sunshine has been providing an overnight camp experience to teens and adults with cognitive/developmental disabilities since 1983. Campers and counselors have a 1:1 pairing for the duration of camp, experiencing each moment together.
Each day is carefully planned with traditional camp activities like ropes courses or other physical activities, arts and crafts, swimming and water activities, spiritual lessons and music, meals together, and of course, a campfire with s’mores!
This year, Camp Sunshine is offering a three day/two night and a four day/three night camp session at both Camp Blodgett (West Olive) and Camp Henry (Newaygo) Michigan.
Camp Sunshine strives to offer a camp experience to anyone who is interested, regardless of financial needs. The following options are available during the registration process: setting up a payment plan, utilizing respite funds, or applying for a scholarship.
You can set up an incremental payment plan that meets your needs when you register. Payment is due in full on May 4, 2022.
If you would like to utilize respite funds to pay for camp, we are happy to support this process. We have collaborated with County Community Mental Health agencies such as Network 180 and HealthWest and other churches and organizations. Please have your caseworker contact us for the next steps.
If you would like to apply for a Camp Sunshine scholarship you will have the opportunity to when you register. Scholarships are determined on a year-to-year basis and not guaranteed.
Individuals with a current Individualized Education Plan (IEP) may qualify for a scholarship opportunity through the Michigan CEC. To learn more and apply, click here.
If you would like further clarification on the above options, please call the office 616.994.9897 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
