THE STORY:

Sunrise Day Camps are the first and only full-summer day camps in the world designed for children with cancer, ages 3–16, and their siblings. Our camps and year-round programs are offered completely free of charge to every family we serve.

For children whose lives have been filled with grueling days of frightening and often painful treatments, Sunrise offers them a chance to escape from this world and just be a child again. At Sunrise, the sounds of monitors are replaced with laughter, and the feelings of cold machines and sharp needles quickly disappear with warm hugs from counselors and new friends.

Unlike sleep-away camps only offered for 1-2 weeks each summer, Sunrise Day Camps allow children in active treatment to continue with their home doctors, while attending camp each day. This unique concept allows children the comfort of sleeping in their own beds each night – a comfort not only for our campers, but for their parents as well.

Siblings, who are often not allowed to play with other children for fear of bringing home germs, are free to be with friends and escape the constant worry often found in a home with a chronically ill child. All activities are designed with special features to best accommodate chronically ill children, with medical personnel always available to provide expert care if needed.

Sunrise Day Camps are proud members of the Sunrise Association, whose mission, is to bring back the joys of childhood to children with cancer and their siblings world-wide, through the creation of Sunrise Day Camps, Year-Round Programs and In-Hospital Recreational Activities, all offered free of charge.

Our goal of $30,000 will send 5 children to camp this summer!
