Camp Sunshine’s Annual Lupus Camp: August 19-24, 2007

I recently learned of a really great resource, and knew immediately it was blog-worthy. It’s called Camp Sunshine and it’s located in Maine.

So what is Camp Sunshine you ask? Camp Sunshine is a camp which supports children with life threatening illnesses and their families. The camp has the distinction of being the only program in the nation whose mission is to address the impact of a life threatening illness on every member of the immediate family -- the ill child, the parents, and the siblings.

Families with a child diagnosed with a life-threatening disease -- including cancer, kidney disease, lupus, leukemia and a brain tumor -- can attend one of the week-long camps.

And the best part is ... it’s free!

This year, Camp Sunshine will host its lupus camp August 19-24. As of this writing, there are a handful of slots still available. To learn more, visit the Camp Sunshine website:

Until next time ... Wick
