About Camp Sunshine:
Camp Sunshine is a week-long vacation spot located in Casco, ME, designed for families with a child affected by a life threatening illness. Camp creates a joyful, fun and exciting atmosphere for the whole family in hopes that they are able to take their minds off the daily struggles that come along with a life threatening illness.

ALL families that go to Camp Sunshine get to go free of charge!! It costs about $2,000 per family- this is where we come in!!

Our goal:
In March, you are invited to participate in the annual Camp Sunshine Polar Plunge! Your job is to get pledges and jump into freezing cold water J (you’ll be fine!)

How to Join/Donate:
Bishop Ludden will be forming a Team where each individual will raise money. (If you raise at least $100 you get a free long sleeve T-shirt! They are awesome!)
1.      Go to www.freezinforareason.com
a.       Click “Central New York Polar Dip”
b.      Click “Join a Team”, find Bishop Ludden’s team (OR, for donors, choose “Make a Donation”- donors can specify a specific person to receive their donation or just donate to the team), then fill out the relevant information!

Once you have joined the team, you will be directed to an individual plunge page in the “Participation Center” where you can create email messages and social media posts to send out to your family and friends, telling them what a wonderful act of kindness you are doing and asking for donations. The more you spread the word, the more we can help send families to camp!

If you have friends or family members who would also like to take the plunge, please feel free to let them know how to join our team.

Our goal is to raise as much money as we can so we can send local CNY families to Camp Sunshine cost free and worry free.

Thank you for all that you do and GO CAMP SUNSHINE!
