Get Involved -- You Can Help Make a Difference!

Camp Sunshine staff consists almost entirely of volunteers who donate their time and talent to create unforgettable memories for children with cancer and their families. Our camper's parents place tremendous trust in us to find, select, and train the best individuals to whom they can entrust their children. We do not take our parents' trust lightly. 

Hundreds of dedicated volunteers participate in our programs each year. Many return again and again. They help with summer camp, family camp weekends, teen retreats, Camp Sunshine House programs, and special events throughout the year. All of our programs are dependent on a willing community of volunteers. Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Camp Sunshine!
