Summer isn't Summer without "Sunshine"
For kids who love the "sunshine," on-campus days at Sunshine Learning Center's summer camps begin with silly camp songs, skits and a-run through of the day's amazing happenings. The kids then participate in fun activities like arts and crafts, games, sports, science and cooking, all based on that day's themes. Fun examples: Creating Sunshine's own kid-run city, going for the gold in the Sunshine Olympics and showcasing each child's creativity at "America's Got Talent Sunshine Edition." To finish out the day, children receive the character beads that they earned by showing kindness, respect, athleticism, trustworthiness and/or creativity. But the real excitement comes on field-trip days! Sunshine campers go on thrilling in-town and out-of-town field trips twice per week. Your child will ride roller coasters at Magic Mountain and Knott's Berry Farm, get to see the Space Shuttle Endeavour at the California Science Center, touch sharks at the Aquarium of the Pacific and go whizzing down big slides at Scooter's Jungle, all in a safe environment boasting warm, caring camp leaders and a low student-to-staff ratio.
