About GrandCamp

 Camp for grandparents and grandchildren: No parents allowed!

Camp is for all ages. Sonlight offers an opportunity for grandparents to experience camp with their grandkids. Enjoy a long weekend with the grandkids — neither of you will have the chance to be bored! Hiking, crafts, games, songs, biking, s’mores around the campfire – enjoy all this and more as you grow closer as a family within a fun, Christ centered environment!

The GrandCamp provides grandparents an opportunity to spend quality time with their grandchildren while giving parents a well deserved vacation. A great way to introduce a younger child to the summer camp experience with the security of a trusted adult.

The GrandCamp is for grandparents of all ages, and for campers entering 2nd grade (Fall 2018) or older.

Letter From The Directors

 Dear Camper Parents,
We are so excited to host your child at Sonlight Christian Camp for a week or more this upcoming summer. We look forward to a time of laughter, great food and many fun activities together. The week will be a balance of learning about ourselves and God, a time to ask those tough questions and an opportunity to grow as a person. With hiking, campfires and crazy games, we’ll explore God’s creation and life as God wants it to be. We hope it will be the BEST week of your child’s summer.
If you have any questions or concerns about Sonlight Camp, our staff or our program, please contact us. If there are unique or special circumstances that apply to your child, also let us know so we can serve your family better. Our passions are kids and camp. We want every camper to love the Sonlight Camp experience. See you this summer!

Vaya Con Dios,

Summer 2018 Theme

Welcome to Summer 2018: A summer of putting aside the tomorrows and the yesterdays and saying, HEY, I’M HERE TODAY and learning to love and live in the moment. Because, life is happening all around us – in the small moments and in the grand ones, too. Let’s gather together this summer to put aside our phones, grab a friend’s hand and give three hip hip hoorays to the chance to do life with one another in a real, present, and authentic way.

You are here! Wherever you find yourself right now, I encourage you to be fully there. Don’t let the wonder and glory of life pass you by. Jesus continues to work and be fully present in those small, sometimes mundane moments. So, let’s all try to live out our lives RIGHT NOW instead of waiting for life’s next big moment to happen.

Sing a little louder, dance a little bit crazier, jump a little higher, love a little more. Enjoy it.

“I liked being considered one of the campers, as a grand!”
