Camp Sunshine Volunteer Information
Camp Sunshine will again be open weekly from Monday through Friday from 9:00 A.M. to 3:30 P.M. beginning this year on June 24, 2019 and ending August 16, 2019. Sunshine's activities include morning swimming lessons for the campers, adapted sports in the park, special theme days such as Hawaiian Day, Super Hero Day and Carnival Day!!! The orientation for volunteers will be held on June 15, 2019 from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM. The orientation is not mandatory, but you are always welcome to attend to acquaint yourself with the program and learn about our new activities.
As a volunteer, you can set your own schedule for the summer. *****THERE IS NO NEED TO PRE- REGISTER*****. You are welcome to volunteer for as many days as you choose, just bring a bathing suit, a towel, and a lunch each day you want to volunteer. The only requirement is if you come for a day, you need to stay for the entire day. The Camp has a barbeque every Friday so you will not need a lunch on those days. Also, please bring your bathing suit and towel even if it looks like rain because often times the weather can change quickly, and if you leave your towel and suit at home, you will not be able to swim with your camper. Don't forget, also, that Camp meets rain or shine. On rainy days, we take special trips to the mall, arcades, or movies, so we need just as many volunteers for rainy days as well.
All volunteers must complete a volunteer application. Please fill out both sides and bring it with you on your first day. The applications are renewed each year, so even if you filled one out for a past summer, you will still need to fill out one for the coming summer. All of your service hours are logged to help you meet any community service obligations you may have.
Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us by phone at 201-652-1755 or by email at Campsunsnow@gmail.com. We look forward to seeing you at 'Sunshine' this summer.
