Sunshine Kids Club is the largest summer camp provider of school-age
children entering pre-kindergarten through seventh grade in Carroll
County. Knowing that children need and want more to do during their
summer months than to hang inside and watch cartoons or play video
games all day, and realizing that parents need quality, convenient,
and affordable camp options, are a few good reasons why we created
Sunshine Kids Club Camp.
Our Purpose at the
Sunshine Kids Club
At Sunshine Kids Club, the children play an active part in deciding
which clubs, sports, and activities will be offered. Their involvement
in helping to choose the curriculum gives them a sense of ownership
in our program that is not found elsewhere. We strongly believe that
children need to have choices, and we work hard to provide a variety
of opportunities for the children to be able to make choices.
The welfare and safety of your child is our first concern. We realize
that each child is different, and we truly strive to provide a program
that provides both flexibility and stability to ensure that your child’s
needs are met. Your child is important to you.....and to us! That is
why we encourage an open relationship between our parents and staff.
Only by working together, can we provide your child with a loving, understanding,
and safe environment while they are at their home away from home.
Sunshine has proven exceptional care for the children of Carroll County
for over 16 years! With our open door policy, we encourage you to visit
our location anytime to see how we do it!
Sunshine Kids Club Camp
Our goal at Sunshine Kids’ Club Camp is to provide
an exceptional and stable child care environment for children entering
Pre Kindergarten through seventh grade. The physical environment our
summer camp location is comfortable, safe, secure, recreational, educational
and fun. The camp is free from hazards and has a predictable routine
that is appropriate for the age and abilities of all the children enrolled.
At Sunshine we recognize that participating in many activities offered
positively impacts a child's life in more ways than just the obvious
physical benefits. The sense of accomplishment children gain from playing
sports, seeing themselves improve and succeed, really enhances their
confidence and self-esteem. Playing team sports and participating in
the different activities together helps kids learn necessary socialization
skills, including how to work with others, and provides the framework
for developing lifelong friendships and working relationships. And,
finally, kids learn valuable life lessons, such as the importance of
setting goals, all the while knowing that it's not whether you win or
lose but how you play the game that counts.
As such, we have made it our goal to offer a camp program for children
that promote the importance of these values. We can think of no finer
purpose than helping a child reach their full potential in life through
their experiences at our summer camp. With the continuity of care
provided everyday, children are allowed to explore their environment
and choose from a wide variety of fun-oriented activities, sports
and educational materials for their use.
Children should look forward to coming each day, have fun and enjoy
the time they spend at the camp. Their routine will never be taken
so seriously as to restrict spontaneity or playfulness in either
the children or the staff. Children should be children first. They
should enjoy their childhood by building friendships, explore new
interests with other children and with each staff member. They should
be allowed to express their feelings. The importance of cooperation,
friendship, teamwork, decision making, responsibility, trust and
distinguishing between right and wrong through their experience
will be emphasized continuously.
We feel that Sunshine Kid’ Club Camp is a truly unique experience.
We are a comprehensive sports & recreation facility.
We designed Sunshine Kids Club Camp with one goal in mind; to enhance
your child's self-esteem and self- confidence. We thrive on an active,
dynamic agenda, designed to show each child what he or she can do,
not what they can't. When you put it all together, Sunshine Kids Club
Camp is an experience your child will never forget!!! The summer camp
setting is a happy, structured, supervised, stable environment. Your
child will receive substantial adult interaction and plenty of attention.
There is a special focus on developing the full potential of each
child, including those who demonstrate gifted or special talents.
The program environment is structured to provide realistic challenges
for each child based on his or her own unique abilities, interests,
and talents. Emphasis is placed on creating an accepting and nurturing
attitude towards each child, and instilling a good sense of self-esteem
and pride in achievement.
Sunshine Kids Club Attitude Towards Children
Caregivers should love children and enjoy being around them. They
should be non-judgmental and supportive of each child’s own
ethnic, religious and cultural heritage. They should treat all children
equal providing each child with the same opportunities and encouragement.
They should respect children as unique individuals and should value
each child’s own ideas and opinions. They should be affectionate,
calm, cheerful, empathetic, energetic, kind, loving, patient, and
sensitive. They should be attentive to each child’s needs and
feelings. We expect this not only from ourselves, but also from every
staff member, substitute, guest and parent.
