Camp Sunshine is a nationally-recognized non-profit retreat for families with children facing life-threatening illnesses.

Located in Casco in Maine's Sebago Lake region, Camp Sunshine provides a camp vacation at no charge. The camp offers one of the only programs in the nation whose mission is to address the impact of a life-threatening illness on every member of the immediate family. While attending the various week-long camps, families are able to rebuild relationships together and meet other families facing similar challenges.

Camp Sunshine also is known for strong financial oversight. The organization consistently receives a coveted 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, the nation’s leading independent charity evaluator. Each year, Charity Navigator exhaustively analyzes thousands of charity organizations for financial oversight, management and transparency.

Camp Sunshine offers children with life-threatening illnesses and their families a place to relax together for a week, and to take a break from the extraordinary demands placed upon them on a daily basis. The year-round program is free of charge and staffed almost entirely by volunteers. Since its inception in 1984, Camp Sunshine has provided a haven for more than 32,000 individuals from diverse cultural backgrounds. In addition to providing 24-hour on-site medical and psychosocial support, the camp offers a variety of daily activities, including swimming, boating, archery and soccer, and special events such as bonfires and cookouts. To support Camp Sunshine, please call (207) 655-3800 or www.campsunshine.org.
