Sunshine Day Camp Stevenson Ranch opened its doors in the fall of 1996. Sunshine Day Camp Stevenson Ranch services children and families at Stevenson Ranch Elementary School.

As a former Sunshine Day Camp counselor myself, I understand the quality of care and respect for children needed in a daycare. It’s comforting to know that Sunshine  Day Camp Stevenson Ranch has carried on this long-standing tradition. I hear it in my children’s conversations as they talk about what they did at Sunshine Day Camp today, the way they talk about the counselors, the Sunshine Day Camp songs they sing repeatedly, or the disappointment in their faces when I’ve picked them up “too early.” You couldn’t ask for a better or more personable staff.

The greatest thing about Sunshine Day Camp is our staff.

Sunshine Day Camp “counselors” combine fresh, creative ideas with high energy to create a lively learning environment for your child. Many are college graduates and many others are teachers-in-training. And, their playful personalities and strong moral character make them excellent role models. Inspired by our fun, summer camp atmosphere, each counselor has a nickname, too. Whether you’re talking to Cricket, TicTac, Peanut, or any other staff member, you’ll notice our most outstanding quality right away—we really love kids!
