In what has become a CBA summer tradition, two groups of CBA students from the Class of 13 traveled to the picturesque shores of Sebago Lake, Maine, not for rest and relaxation, but to volunteer at Camp Sunshine. Camp Sunshine provides respite and support to children battling life-threatening illnesses and their families and allows them to spend a carefree week enjoying many fun-filled activities in the great outdoors.
Coordinated by faculty member Vin Horan, the first group traveled to the camp for a week in July, while the second group arrived for a week in August. Horan was accompanied by his wife, Irene, who acted as the camp doctor and son Quinn. Todd Benware, a CBA faculty member also chaperoned.
Open for more than 25 years, Camp Sunshine operates year-round and serves approximately 40 families per week. It depends on the generosity of its volunteers to give its campers a safe, carefree and memorable week free-of-charge.
Seniors from Christian Brothers Academy who volunteered for a week at Camp Sunshine this past summer include: Front row (l-r): Ben Capella, John Hillenbrand, Quinn Horan (son of Vin Horan), Ariana Marshall and Dalia McKenzie. Back row (l-r): Vin Horan (coordinator of the trip and faculty member at CBA), Courtney Finkbeiner, Kathryn Coughlin, Maggie Fletcher, Summer Schmitt, Maire-Kate McGlynn, Luke Brown and Zach Taylor.
