Activities

If you share the heart and the vision of Suntown Camp Foundation, Inc., you can help give a little sun into the oftentimes dark life of the kids by sharing your time, talent or treasure to support any of our five major projects:

Annual Five-Day Camp (October or November)
Since 2007, we provide the children with opportunity to interact with other children of similar pain so that, while they see that they are not alone in their troubles, they also develop a bond that will help sustain them throughout their troubled future. They also have activities that allow them to interact with caring adults who can help be their anchors:
 Suntown Camp 1 (2007): “There’s L after K”
 Suntown Camp 2 (2008) : “A Dose of Happiness”
 Suntown Camp 3 (2009): “Life in Color!”
 Suntown Camp 4 (2010): “ Waving Flags”
 Suntown Camp 5 (2011): “A Touch of Magic”
 Suntown Camp 6 (2012): “Out of the Box”
 Suntown Camp 7 (2013) : “Power Up!”
 Suntown Camp 8 (2014): “Chasing Dreams”
 Suntown Camp 9 (2015): “ Way to Go!”
 Suntown Camp 10 (2016): “Discovering Charms”

Fun Activities
We organize quarterly fun activities (mini camps) for the children during the seasons of:

a. Christmas
b. Valentine’s Day
c. Summer and
d. Thanksgiving

So that their camp experience is replicated and the gains of the annual camp is not lost in them.

Staff Training
Since our foundation’s resources are not substantial, all our activities are managed by volunteers. To insure quality camp staff, we organize regular training programs for them, as well as orientation programs for new recruits.

Support Group Sessions for the Children, their Siblings and Parents
The gains of the camp can only be fully enjoyed if the children’s home environment become a productive setting for them. Thus we conduct support group sessions for the kids’ siblings and parents on different occasions, so that the whole family can provide the children with an ideal home setting within their shattered lives. The children are likewise provided with support group sessions among themselves.

Endowment Fund to Assure Continuity
We are working towards building an endowment fund for Suntown Camp so that the foundation can be assured of continued funds for its worthwhile programs, without its members bearing the burden of fund solicitation for every activity throughout the year. It is our dream that someday, it can sustain its activities, as well as increase its capability to serve more beneficiaries, on earnings from its endowment fund.
