About Sunny Shores Sea Camp
Sunny shores sea camp
It all started with salt water…
Falcon Batchelor had fought against Cystic Fibrosis his entire life. CF is a genetic condition, so he’d been battling it personally since birth – but he had also rallied against it on behalf of others who suffered from it. One day, he noticed that his symptoms always seemed to feel better when he was in and around salt water.
Partnering with Dr. Robert McKey (a renowned CF Doctor) and Dick Gilmore (a CF parent), they stumbled upon a wonderful idea.
And so, Sunny Shores Sea Camp was born.
Falcon Batchelor lost his battle with CF in 1990, and Dr. McKey passed away in 2009… but our battle continues until the day when CF is no more. Until then, we will do whatever it takes to assure that Sunny Shores continues to change the lives of the deserving CF children each and every summer.
From the Beginning
Since 1980, Sunny Shores Sea Camp has been helping families and mentoring children with Cystic Fibrosis. Today, SSSC offers a four-night, five-day camp where attendees make new friends who face the same battles, while parents have the privilege of enjoying the beach and the resort while gaining life-changing information from doctors, guest speakers, and successful people living with Cystic Fibrosis.
For the past two decades, there has never been a charge to participants of this camp, thanks to the generosity of various donors and fundraisers.
Where Proceeds Go
Our success would not be possible without the generosity of the South Florida community in conjunction with our golf sponsors, product sponsors, donors and volunteers. All Board members of Sunny Shores Sea Camp are volunteers, who gladly donate their time. All net proceeds donated to Sunny Shores go directly to supporting camp.
"I've been going to camp 13 years now. I don't know where I would be without it. I truly believe camp is why I'm still doing good today. I've learned so much from so many campers that have helped me over the years. I can't name one or even a few, because every single camper has helped me in some way or another. "
