Sunnyhill operates a camp that provides recreational opportunities for children with or without disabilities and adults with disabilities to experience the great outdoors. Everyday is an adventure at camp; campers enjoy fishing, swimming, canoeing, campfires, climbing & repelling, all the while discovering, learning, growing, team building and forming friendships. Over 500 children and adults of all abilities attend Sunnyhill Adventures every summer and hundreds more children visit the camp for field trips and community youth events in the fall and spring. Sunnyhill's residential support services provides customized daily, in-home support for over 200 individuals. Through this program Sunnyhill maximizes independence in the least restrictive environment. Like all of Sunnyhill's programs, Sunnyhill's residential services emphasize health, safety, independence, personal choice, autonomy and involvement in the community. Currently the organization provides care through Missouri's Medicaid Waiver Program for people who need 24 hour support and through the Independent Supported Living Arrangements (ISLA) Program for those individuals who can live independently with occasional support. Sunnyhill University is an educational day program for adults with developmental disabilities that supports acquisition of life skills and community involvement. Sunnyhill University is a school that gives individuals with disabilities the opportunity to venture out of their homes, learn about their community and the world around them, improve on valuable life skills, socialize and enjoy life. Sunnyhill University creates a learning environment for adults with disabilities that fosters interest, creativity, learning, independence, autonomy, confidence, pride and dignity. By integrating life skills education with academics, Sunnyhill University provides people with developmental disabilities the opportunity to develop their intellectual, physical and social skills. Sunnyhill also provides weekend travel opportunities for adults with disabilities. Many individuals served by Sunnyhill, as well as other community organizations, participate in Sunnyhill's On The Road Adventures program. Once or twice a month, Sunnyhill escorts travelers on weekend road trips to desirable vacation locations such as Nashville, Memphis, Branson, Chicago and Indianapolis. Travelers enjoy many activities such as sight seeing, shopping, attractions and shows, all with the support of Sunnyhill staff.
