Sonshine Day Camp
When you support Toronto City Mission, it helps make a positive transformation in the lives of children at Sonshine Day Camp; a free seven week day camp offered in four communities impacted by poverty. See how your support can make a difference this summer.
SAFE AND HEALTHY ROLE MODELS
Children who participate in Sonshine Day Camp learn healthy relationship behaviours from staff, interns, and mission teams. Your gift gives us the opportunity to hire 17 summer interns who are passionate and eager to serve at TCM.
“I have heard their stories of broken families, responsibility for their siblings, bullying, among other stories of pain and loss. Despite this, these kids are exuberant and are testimony of strength. It’s an honour to help provide an environment where they can feel safe, have fun with their peers, and learn about the hope of Jesus!”
FUN AND BIBLE-BASED PROGRAMMING
Before Sonshine Day Camp begins, interns and Outreach Workers will spend three weeks planning the curriculum. Your gift gives the opportunity for kids to be involved in programming where they will be engaged in Bible-based lessons, worship songs, cooperative games, and field trips.
“We asked questions about what heaven would be like, and how they could be accepted into God’s Kingdom. At first, they believed that doing good works or being a good person would get them into heaven. We shared about Jesus and the gospel and by the end of the thirty minutes, all the children accepted Christ into their lives.”
