It was wonderful to gather with the volunteers of the 'Sunflower' camp and express our immense gratitude for their hard work. Unfortunately, not everyone could be present, but we remember all of you. Once again, a big thank you to all of you. The leaders of the children's groups are truly incredible. Let's continue to grow and do many more good deeds. Chefs, you are unparalleled. The doctor is super creative and imaginative, the canoeing was unforgettable, the artist and dance school are top-notch, rhythmic gymnastics is Olympic-worthy...to all, a gigantic thank you and tremendous respect!

Hello Dear Organizers, Sponsors, Volunteers, Counselors, and all those involved in the SUNFLOWER Children's Ukrainian Camp.

We are one of the fortunate families from Ukraine who had the opportunity to participate in this year's children's camp in a picturesque location.

It brought us immense joy to provide our eldest daughter with the chance to improve her health and enjoy herself at the wonderful Sunflower Camp.

Throughout the week, the kids experienced a flood of positive emotions, formed great impressions, witnessed holistic development, and gained new experiences and friendships with many incredible individuals.

Above all, it served as a Ukrainian focal point in distant Canada.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all of you for supporting our future, as children are the future! We deeply appreciate your efforts in creating such a magnificent place surrounded by breathtaking nature. Our thanks also go to all the partners for their seamless collaboration, resulting in an exceptionally gratifying outcome—joyful children and delighted parents.

With your unwavering support, dedication, and the tremendous work of volunteers, a wonderful educational tradition has been established for the children .

Blessings to you and your families, inspiration for new achievements, and good health

May the sound of children's laughter always resonate within the SUNFLOWER .

Special thanks: UCSS, UNF, Lions club of Ottawa, Kiwanis club, BCU, UCU, Ukrainian orthodox church, Ukrainian Catholic church.
