A summer camp in Black Mountain is a ray of sunshine for a special group.

Camp Sunshine is for high-functioning adults with special needs. It's been held at Christmount for more almost three decades.

Many come back every year for a little fun, fellowship, and worship.

They say the week-long camp feels like a vacation.

"It's fun to be here. It's got a good bunch of people and I love it. I love coming here every year, especially in the summer," said camper David Peevy of Hendersonville. "I have a good time here. "

This was the last of two Camp Sunshine groups at Christmount this year.

On Friday at 6 p.m., we salute longtime Program Director Jamie Brame as our Person of the Week.
