Sunshine Day Camp returns for another summer
August 9, 2011
Sunshine Day Camp, run entirely by local teenagers, will be back again this year, from Aug. 8-12 at the Lake McDonald Club House.
For $20, children who are potty-trained and up to age 8 can enjoy a week of snacks, games, water activities and lunch.
“We are having special guests throughout the week, including a hip-hop teacher and possibly a clown or magician,” said founder Sada Adams, 14.
Adams started the camp in 2008 at age 11.
The camp runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day, and all profits will be donated to the American Diabetes Association. Camp organizers ask parents to pay more than $20 if they can to help support the cause.
Scholarships will be available to those who cannot afford the $20 fee.
The camp raised $300 in 2010.
“It’s just amazing,” said Heather Berry, whose 6-year-old daughter and 3-year-old son attended the camp in 2010.
She said the price was unbeatable for a weeklong camp, and that it was one of the few camps 3-year-olds could attend. She said her kids had as much or more fun than those at more expensive camps.
