A Holiday Adventure In January 2004 we held the first ever Camp Sonshine camp in Cape Town, South Africa. 16 counselors came to give 66 children of Maitland Garden Village a week of fun through the ministry of Camp Sonshine. This has become a much anticipates annual event. Each year Camp Sonshine has grown a little with more children signing up and more counselors wanting to participate in this ministry. Our camp is run every year in the January school holidays. This camp gives children a break from the many adult responsibilities that they carry on a daily basis. Many children are responsible for cleaning their homes, cooking meals, looking after younger siblings (or sick parents) from a very young age. Once a year they are given a break from all this and are allowed to just be kids and have fun!
