Sunshine Camp

Welcome to Sunshine Camp

It’s like walking on sunshine at camp! This fun and educationally-structured environment encourages exploration time through centers and outside discovery. The development of children’s self-esteem and their social-emotional learning are reinforced and expanded upon throughout the day. Each week we explore a different theme which comes alive through art and science projects, games and activities. Camp also includes sports, team building, themed dress up days, playground time and much more. Campers and staff travel by bus to the Main Y Facility twice each week for instructional swim and once for recreational swim. Plus, there is a weekly special event!
