To date, the New Jersey Polar Dip has raised over $500,000 for Camp Sunshine! With the strength of an event such as the New Jersey Polar Dip and the resources of Camp Sunshine, it is our goal to raise in excess of $75,000 in 2018. That is enough to send 30 New Jersey families to Camp Sunshine.
For 2018, the New Jersey Polar Dip is reaching out to the entire community in an effort to raise awareness and funds for Camp Sunshine. This year we’re making it easier than ever to let all of our participants, volunteers and supporters get involved and help make a difference.
Founded in 1984, Camp Sunshine provides retreats combining respite, recreation and support, while enabling hope and promoting joy, for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families through the various stages of a child’s illness.
Camp Sunshine is the only program in the nation offered year-round with the distinction of having been designed to serve the entire family in a retreat model. The program is free of charge to families and includes on-site medical and psycho-social support. Bereavement sessions are also offered for families who have experienced the death of a child from a supported illness.
Too scared or too smart to take the plunge? There’s the option to participate in the “Chicken Dip” – where you’ll only need to dip your toes in!
**Onsite Registration will be available**
