Give Sonlight Today : Tomorrow or to the Next Generation
Sonlight welcomes all gifts big and small, your generosity does not go un-noticed. We actively raise funds for scholarships so that all can enjoy camp today. Generous donations to the Program Excellence Fund enables us to go beyond the operating budget to provide new programming, facility maintenance and education for staff to keep Sonlight relevant. The Endowment will Give Sonlight to the Next Generation.
Campers, parents, friends, relatives, staff and alumni staff are all donors. The Sonlight family continues to “give back”, enhancing the community spirit and ensuring magical weeks of camp for generations to come.
Summer 2018 will be Sonlight’s 39th summer and we are well in to our second generation of campers and staff. Established in 2012, the Sonlight endowment funds are permanently set aside to generate an annual revenue stream, and give Sonlight to the next generation. We have seen community come together to establish the endowment. Donations from staff members, parents, campers, friends and and friends of friends are building the fund. Gifts from $5/month to a check for $30,000, all donations contribute to making our goal of $2.5 million a reality. The fund currently stands at over $500,000.
Established in the early 1980’s, the scholarship fund makes camp available to all kids. In 2017 Sonlight will distribute over $33,000 in scholarships and subsidies to help kids attend Sonlight. Individuals and churches contribute to keep this fund healthy. All proceeds from our small camp store go to the scholarship fund as well.
Program excellence funds have been set aside to build “Kelsey’s treehouse” in 2017. The hammock village, natural free play area, gaga pit, 9-square in the air, more extensive geocaching, archery upgrades and continuing education for staff were built with these funds in 2014-16.

“I don’t know how to verbalize the tremendous impact Sonlight can have with only one week out of the entire year… what goes on at camp touches lives in ways that nothing else can. Please use my monthly donation where you can use it.”Camper Grandparent
