Sonlight is…an independent not-for-profit organization in our 44th year of operation. We present the gospel through programs and relationships. We focus on community and teamwork, striving to accept diversity and appreciate each individual as a child of God. We are governed by a Board of Directors. Donations are cheerfully accepted, and applied to the camper scholarship fund, Program Excellence Fund or the Endowment Fund. Sonlight does not discriminate against gender, age, choice of cookie, race, nationality, religion or disability. Sonlight is accredited by the American Camp Association and licensed as a Child Care facility by the State of Colorado.
Our Statement of Faith: We believe the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God. We believe in one God existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe Jesus Christ was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, died on the cross for our sins and ascended into heaven to be with God. We believe the church to be part of the body of Christ to help carry out the work of God. We believe that only through Jesus Christ can one have eternal life.
