No Tricks, Only Treats for Camp Sunshine Families This Halloween

No Tricks, Only Treats for Camp Sunshine Families This Halloween

Camp Sunshine hosts virtual "At Home" Halloween programs for families

PR Newswire

CASCO, Maine, Oct. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Camp Sunshine – an award-winning retreat in Casco, Maine for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families continues their "Together at Home" virtual programming in October. Camp Sunshine hosted the first of two Halloween-themed programs for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families this past weekend. The second of these virtual programs is scheduled to take place Halloween weekend.

Families who are enrolled in these programs were mailed curated "Great Pumpkin Packages" filled with Halloween goodies that arrived by mail. These packages include arts and crafts supplies, a fall-themed puzzle, $10 gift cards to purchase a pumpkin courtesy of a generous donation from Academy Mortgage and more. Other program activities include a Halloween-edition talent show, virtual trick-or-treating, pumpkin decorating and the opportunity to connect with other families and beloved volunteers via Zoom meetings.

"These Camp Sunshine At Home programs were designed to resemble what a traditional in-person session would look like at Camp Sunshine this time of year," said Michael Katz, Camp Sunshine's Executive Director. "Although there is still no substitute for having families attend Camp Sunshine in-person, these At Home programs are an important alternative. Families remain enthusiastic and grateful for the ability to stay connected, experience joy, hope and support during these challenging times."
