Camp Sunshine

It is that time of year again, when I will be away from the blog for a week while I volunteer at Camp Sunshine, a camp for children with cancer. This will be my 16th year volunteering for the summer camp part of Camp Sunshine, and I have enjoyed every moment at camp (okay, maybe not 95+degree weather at times, but most everything else)! This year, I will be a cabin counselor for eight 12 year old  (along with two other counselors), and I am guessing I will be involved in a great deal of mountain biking, fishing, tennis, gold panning, going up the climbing wall (or just watching as my campers go up), archery, and a lot of singing. If you have never heard 200+ campers and 150+ volunteers singing and dancing to "Peanut Butter Jelly Time", you are missing a great event.

So, for the next week or so, I will be out of communication with this blog. You can leave comments, but it will be a while before I can answer them. Once I am back, I will begin posting again!

Go Dawgs!


  1. As a mother of a camper (and in the Fall a Dawg) I want to thank you for all you do for Camp Sunshine. Camp Sunshine is an amazing place and has the very BEST volunteers! I know you will have a fun and inspiring week! Enjoy!

  2. Great cause! Have a wonderful week!

  3. when will the official financial package be available.
    thank you

  4. Anon: I would suggest you speak with the financial aid office, as I do not know your specific situation and what the timeline is with your documentation.
