There will also be a state police helicopter and other emergency vehicles on display. All participants will participate in a formal graduation ceremony for all participants.
Campers will be given lunch, snacks, and a Sunny Day T-shirt will be included for registered campers.
The Sunny Day Camp is funded by donations from individuals and businesses. There will be Troopers and other law enforcement professionals who will donate their time as counselors.
