Summary

Sunrise Day Camp is the only full-service dedicated day camp in the US for children with cancer, ages 31/2-16, and their siblings. It is a very special place where children can come, FREE OF CHARGE, and enjoy a summer filled with fun, friendship and activities - things that are often denied them because of their medical condition. Sunrise Day Camp at Pearl River opened in July, 2013 and is the third Sunrise camp worldwide.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Children with cancer are often isolated from the normal activities of childhood; rarely do they have a chance to see beyond the worlds of home, hospital, and doctor's offices. As a result, they frequently feel alienated and miss out on experiences which would typically build the confidence, self-esteem, and social skills that every child needs and deserves.

How will this project solve this problem?

Sunrise Day Camp opens the door to a new world by making it possible for campers to enjoy a summer filled with exciting activities daily, enduring friendships and joyful experiences while paying careful attention to their special medical and emotional needs. Although some activities are quietly modified, Sunrise campers enjoy a typical day camp experience with activities that include, swimming, boating, music, drama, arts & crafts, circus skills, softball, soccer, volleyball and more!

Potential Long Term Impact

We know that of the 11,000 + children in the US, under 15 years of age, who were diagnosed with cancer last year alone, 80% will survive. At Sunrise, we believe that those kids should have the opportunity to acquire the skills that will make them happy and productive adults. They should learn how to swim, how work as part of a team, how to build lasting and enduring friendships. Sunrise campers are given the chance to reclaim their childhood.
