Camp Sunshine, a summer recreational program for multiply disabled children and young adults, will open for its 60th season this summer. Located in Bergen County's Saddle River County Park, Wild Duck Pond Area, the Camp has thrived in this picturesque and barrier-free environment.
Campers participate in daily Arts & Crafts and sports activities, go swimming twice during each day in our adapted, onsite heated swimming pool, and take field trips to places such as Liberty Science Center. While still maintaining its rustic charm, our newly-renovated, state-of-the-art facility is fully equipped for the needs of our campers, with a playroom/video center, Windows computer network, and over 2000 sq. ft. of air conditioned activity space. Our professional staff and volunteers ensure that our campers get the fullest enjoyment from the opportunities afforded at Camp Sunshine.
Campers are divided into small groups of approximately 8 to 12 campers, with the groupings based upon the campers' ages and abilities, ensuring that each camper can thrive among his or her peers throughout the summer. Each group has a Group Leader and an Assistant Group Leader supervising and assisting the campers and Volunteer Camp Counselors, who work individually with our Campers. Camp Sunshine has been successful for over 50 years because of its continuous supply of dedicated volunteers from local schools, churches, and community organizations, who provide one-to-one care to each camper at the program.
Camp Sunshine opened in 1960 and is located at the Saddle River County Park, Wild Duck Pond Area, at 1133 E. Ridgewood Ave., Ridgewood, NJ.
For the Summer of 2019, Camp Sunshine will open on June 24, 2019, and run until August 16, 2019. Camp Sunshine runs Monday through Friday from 9:00 A.M. to 3:30 P.M.
