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. We work hard to pair our campers and counselors in a way that best suits them - sometimes that is a 1:1 pairing and sometimes that is a 2:1 grouping, 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 tow four day/three night camp sessions at both Camp Blodgett (West Olive) and Camp Henry (Newaygo) Michigan.
Please review this page thoroughly for more information about registering for Camp Sunshine 2023.
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 in May 1, 2023.
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, as well as other churches and organizations. Please have your caseworker contact the Camp Sunshine team for the next steps.
You will be able to apply for a Camp Sunshine scholarship at registration. 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 through the Michigan CEC. To learn more and apply, click here.
