There are many ways you can personally collect donations for Camp through social media this polar dip season! These social campaigns like Facebook fundraisers and collecting donations through Instagram stories are highly encouraged, but please keep track of your total by adding in these amounts as "offline donations" in your participant center. Remember to select the correct Camp Sunshine when setting up your social fundraisers - our Facebook handle is @CampSunshine1984 and our Instagram handle is @GoCampSunshine.
For 2023, the New Jersey Polar Dip is reaching out to the entire community in an effort to raise awareness and funds for Camp Sunshine. This year we're making it easier than ever to let all of our participants, volunteers and supporters get involved and help make a difference.
Founded in 1984, Camp Sunshine provides retreats combining respite, recreation and support, while enabling hope and promoting joy, for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families through the various stages of a child’s illness.
Camp Sunshine has the distinction of having been designed to serve the entire family in a retreat model. The program is free of charge to families and includes on-site medical support. A bereavement session is offered for families who have experienced the death of a child from a supported illness.
