In what has become a Christian Brothers Academy summer tradition, two groups of students from the Class of ‘14 traveled to the picturesque shores of Sebago Lake, Maine, not for rest and relaxation, but to volunteer at Camp Sunshine. Camp Sunshine provides respite and support to children battling life-threatening illnesses and their families and allows them to spend a carefree week enjoying many fun-filled activities in the great outdoors.

Coordinated by faculty member Vin Horan, the first group traveled to the camp for a week in July, while the second group arrived for a week in August.

Open for more than 25 years, Camp Sunshine operates year-round and serves approximately 40 families per week. It depends on the generosity of its volunteers to give its campers a safe, carefree and memorable week free-of-charge.
