The camp is on a beautiful
wooded 20 acre tract located 18 miles south of Ocala, Florida in
Marion County just off U.S. Highway 301 and State Road 42. The main
goal of this camp is to provide facilities for teachings, instructing,
and encouraging young and old in the Christian way of life.
For almost 30 years,
Camp Sonlight has offered a safe and serene location for church
group retreats, family reunions, youth camps, couples retreats,
worship services, music workshops, or just a weekend getaway. Located
in Summerfield Florida, Camp Sonlight is ideal for year-round functions.
Beautiful shaded oaks
provide perfect cover for your Spiritual encounters. Our Staff House
accommodates 56 campers and offers private bathrooms and showers
in each of the seven cabins. The four dormitories accommodate 18
campers each, two dorms for male campers and two dorms for female
campers. Separate bathrooms and showers for both male and female
campers are available.
A full-service commercial
kitchen is available with gas ovens and stoves. Walk-in refrigerator
and freezer and plenty of food storage is available. The Dining
Hall seats 200 campers. Offices and restrooms are adjacent to the
Kitchen and Dining Hall facilities.
Recreational areas include

a bonfire circle is quietly positioned away from buildings to offer

the solitude of Central Florida. Take a quiet stroll around the
