We are Sunshine
A resource center for summer of 2020
About Sunshine Everywhere
While this summer looked different than our traditional experience, we know that the mission of Camp Sunshine - a message of inclusivity and love - shone through, as Sunshine is everywhere.
Within an alternate camp experience called ‘Sunshine Everywhere,' the Camp Sunshine team planned activities and experiences throughout the summer including lessons, creative expressions, recreation, and entertainment.

Throughout Michigan and beyond, 195 campers opted to participate in the Sunshine Everywhere program this year. With two experiential options available, we were able to engage with campers through video, planned activities, and more. In addition, 280+ campers received a Sunshine in a Box experience.
The success of our 2020 Sunshine Everywhere program is in large part due to the commitment and dedication of our 200+ volunteers. Their commitment included weekly touch bases with campers, Cabin Connects (group sessions), planning of activities, videos, and more.
This summer, campers, counselors, leadership team & staff made over 1,200 one on one connections through phone calls and video chats. 72 Cabin Connects and video group sessions also took place for campers to engage and connect with one another.
Every month, campers were given a packet full of activities and planned experiences to engage with each week. Crafts, songs, lessons, recreation activities and even scheduled video dance parties filled our 2020 summer program with joy, laughter, and connection all within a safe and inclusive environment.
