About Camp Sonshine

Camp Sonshine Portugal was established in 2008.

Since 2008, camp has changed and transformed every year to make it an even better experience for the young people. We have had many different leaders over the years coming from all across Europe to look after the young people at camp and we also have our core team who strive every year to make camp better.
