Casino Night has been postponed till next year, 2021 -->
IMPORTANT: The Camp Sunshine will be CLOSED for the 2020 summer session.

Camp Sunshine first opened its doors during the summer of 1970, and has been open every summer for the past 60 years. Yes you read correctly, Camp Sunshine will be celebrating it’s 60th Anniversary this summer.

As most are aware, in the past few weeks Governor Murphy signed an executive order allowing day camps to open while following strict guidelines. In the weeks since that announcement, very few guidelines and regulations have been released to allow us to adequately prepare to open our doors. The safety of our volunteers, staff, and campers continues to remain our #1 priority. That being said, we regret to announce that Camp Sunshine will be closed for the 2020 season.

Our priority has now shifted and we are doing everything we can, as updated regulations and guidelines become available, to prepare to open in September for the 2020-2021 Camp Snowflake season! We look forward to when we can see our staff, amazing campers, and dedicated volunteers again in person.

Please check back soon as we have some fun plans to continue to celebrate Camp Sunshine's 60th summer in a virtual manner. Just as our camp wouldn't be possible in person without everyone's support, we will need YOUR help to make this VIRTUAL CELEBRATION for 60 YEARS OF CAMP SUNSHINE come to life!

Please don't hesitate to contact us with further questions via email or Facebook. Stay safe and stay healthy!

Sincerely, your Camp Sunshine/Snowflake Administrators

Recreational Programs for Children and Young Adults with Multiple Disabilities

Camp Sunshine

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 2020, Camp Sunshine will open on TBD, 2020, and run until TBD, 2020. Camp Sunshine runs Monday through Friday from 9:00 A.M. to 3:30 P.M.
