Sonshine Day Camp is not only a fun and exciting time for the campers but also for the TLC (Teens Leading Communities) who help lead the activities. The TLCs have been training throughout the school year and now they get to practice what they have learned. For many of them they grew up attending the camp and now they are getting their first taste of what it means to have a job. At the end of the summer, they receive a small honourarium for all their hard work.
Lions, tigers, and… pandas! Children love animals, one of the best days of Sonshine Day Camp is going to the zoo and visiting all God’s creations, big and small.
Some of our interns’ most memorable camp memories can be traced back to traveling with a child on a field trip or walking them from their housing complex to the camp. During these times a child can really open up to share their excitement about what they just experienced on the trip, to the fears that they may have because of family struggles and to the joy they feel when they realize how much they are loved by God.
Children love to sing and dance so and it is very apparent when they have the time to sign praises to the Lord and use their whole bodies to worship the great and might King.

Our staff go to great efforts to make camp fun and enjoyable. One way that they do this is through creating theme days where the kids get to experience a day where they can dress up as a superhero or a pirate as they learn about whom the ultimate super hero is and what real treasure is.
