Box of Sunshine: Winter Edition
The magic of Camp Sunshine in winter, delivered to your doorstep! The Box of Sunshine: Winter Edition is a box full of winter – themed arts and crafts projects, activities, and goodies from Maine, designed for the whole family to enjoy together whenever, and however you choose! Each Winter Edition Box of Sunshine will also include wish “sleds” for each of the children – a winter spin on one of our most beloved Camp Sunshine traditions.

On top of that, you'll have access to a website full of on-demand video content including demonstrations from volunteers, staff, and some special guests, too.
