About Sunshine Point Camp and the Kiwanis Club of Windsor
The Kiwanis Club of Windsor has been incorporated over 100 years and has been operating Kiwanis Sunshine Point Camp since 1947. We are a service club dedicated to bettering the lives of children in Windsor and Essex County.

Kiwanis Sunshine Point Camp is a five-day, overnight camp for children. It is located on Lake Erie at 955 County Road 50 East, forty-five minutes from Windsor, between Colchester and Kingsville. Our camp welcomes boys and girls over a seven-week period. Five weeks are reserved for boys and girls ages seven to eleven. Two weeks are reserved for 12-14-year-olds. Each camp period runs from Sunday afternoon till Friday afternoon. We financially subsidize those children who can’t afford to attend and work closely with the Windsor Essex Children’s Aid Society to identify children who would benefit from summer camp.

Work begins for our staff with orientation and training July 1-5. Our staff spend the weeks onsite and may sleep in a camper cabin and in some cases in a staff cabin. Staff is responsible to bring their own toiletries and linens. Our staff join our campers for all meals.
