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. Each year, the success of camp has relied on dedicated volunteers, especially our counselors. Campers and counselors have a 1:1 pairing for the duration of camp! Every 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 two four day/three night camp sessions at both Camp Blodgett (West Olive) and Camp Henry (Newaygo) Michigan.
We’re seeking dedicated, compassionate individuals who are interested in serving as counselors and ready to experience the transformation - and joy - that Camp Sunshine offers! We hope you'll join us.
Please review the page linked here for more information about Camp! The Central Registry form is required for all counselors over age 21.
