A sweet friendship refreshens the soul
Become a Camp Sunshine Counselor
Camp Sunshine would not be possible without the hundreds of volunteer counselors we rely on every summer to guarantee the careful attention and unique experience our special one-on-one program provides. We firmly believe that this intentional pairing encourages relationships that spark transformations in the lives of both campers and counselors.
Our unique format also provides counselors with very personal life experiences. Numerous counselors have credited Camp Sunshine with changing their lives in profound and unforgettable ways. While we exist primarily to serve campers, our incredible camp experience also impacts the lives of everyone who participates.
Year after year, we are overwhelmed by the eager, open-minded, gifted and amazing volunteers who commit to serve as camp counselors.
