Before COVID, we had monthly meet-ups and activities for families, and we were preparing for our first camps. Clearly we couldn’t have the risk of hosting in-person camps for medically fragile children, even with taking all the necessary precautions. So in 2020 we had to innovate, and thus was born our first ever Sunshine-In-A-Box Camp. (Check out this video below.)

What we’ve learned is that even though COVID had momentarily changed the trajectory of our plans (check this out for more on those plans), being physically distanced did not mean that we had to be socially distanced, AND we definitely did not lack inclusion. We began working to keep families engaged and feeling valued even though the entire world felt upside down.

We were so fortunate to have two summer camp sessions in 2021, as well as multiple in-person events. This year we’ve had Spring Break Camp, a family dance party, three summer camp sessions, and a multitude of other meet-ups. We have a lot planned and look forward to seeing you around!

If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.
