CASCO (WGME) — Camp Sunshine isn’t holding an in-person summer camp this year — but they are going virtual.
The camp is a retreat for kids battling life-threatening illnesses.
While the pandemic is keeping the camp from opening up to families in person, Camp Sunshine is still connecting with about 500 families across the country, with online presentations by some of their favorite volunteers, local personalities and surprise appearances.
They’re also sending each family what they call a Box of Sunshine.
“The number of people who have put this all together, our full-time staff, and you can imagine how tricky it is when we are socially distancing,” Michael Katz of Camp Sunshine said.
This is Camp Sunshine’s 36th summer helping families.
