CANCELLED: Sunshine Camp Together Again: A Camp for Siblings!

07-24-2020 - 07-26-2020
Free! $10 refundable deposit required


Dear Families, 
It is with deepest regret that we announce the cancellation of this year’s two summer Family Camps. This decision was not made lightly. The purpose of these camps is to provide families opportunities for fellowship, connection, relaxation, and togetherness. During this time of a widespread COVID-19 pandemic it became clear that we could not provide families with the same level of quality experience we strive for while also providing appropriate protection for everyone. I do hope that you will join us next year as we regroup and celebrate family and friends with renewed energy and hope in 2021. Our tentative Family Camp dates for 2021 will be June 11-13TH and July 16-18TH .  We will be returning all deposit checks sent to us.
We cannot wait to connect again and celebrate your amazing families next year!

This Camp Is specially designed for siblings separated through foster care, adoption, or kinship care and their families. A full weekend of family fun for all!

Lodging, meals, and supplies are provided. Registration is required and will open in March 2020!

For more information or if you wish to volunteer or support this camp please contact Shannon Shepherd at or call 276-623-0881 ext 1519. Background checks are required.

Important Information

While this camp is free, we require a $10 deposit per person to hold your space made out to Depaul Community Resources. This check will be returned to you at camp. If you wish to cancel, you must do so 30 days prior to the camp, or your check will be cashed as a donation towards future camps.

Individual families must register separately. If you wish to room near the family of your child's siblings, please note that in the appropriate space on the registration form and be sure to include the last name(s).
