Welcome to Sunrise Association Day Camps
...Where Children with Cancer Find A New Beginning Everyday
Sunrise Association Day Camps are the world’s only dedicated day camps for children with cancer and their siblings, all offered free of charge.
Providing memorable summers since 2006 for children ages 3 1/2–16, Sunrise Day Camps bring the simple pleasures of childhood back to children struggling with cancer, changing months of loneliness and isolation into summers filled with sunshine, laughter and happiness. And because Sunrise is a day camp, it does all this while allowing the children to continue their medical treatment and enjoy the comfort and safety of their own homes at night. There are currently ten Day Camps — three in New York (Long Island, Pearl River & Staten Island), three in Israel (Beit Yehoshuah, Be’er Sheva & Ramat Yochanan), Horizon Day Camp (Baltimore and Metro DC|VA|MD), MD, Aurora Day Camp in Atlanta, GA, Sunrise Day Camp in Greater Philadelphia, Sunrise Day Camp in Chicago, IL and SunriseVX, our virtual experience. Sunrise Association Day Camps are affiliated with 40+ renowned hospitals and medical centers. Sunrise Sundays and Fun-days offer children exciting activities and events when school is not in session; Sunrise on Wheels is a one-of-a-kind program that provides hours of Sunrise-fun to children undergoing treatment in pediatric oncology units of participating hospitals.
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 worldwide. Sunrise accomplishes this through the creation and oversight of welcoming, inclusive summer day camps, year-round programs and in-hospital recreational activities, all offered free of charge.
