Camp Sparkle Online

Connecting kids from coast-to-coast

The COVID-19 pandemic changed how we gather in groups, so we took camp online. We’re excited to announce that online camp is back better than ever with innovative ways to connect campers from across the U.S.

Our online camp is ideal for kids who are in treatment, unable to attend an in-person offering, or living outside Washington state.

Thank you to all of our 2022 online campers and families!
