Sunrise Day Camp

“The best thing about camp this summer was the abundance of joy and anticipation that all of my children experienced every camp day!”

Sunrise Day Camp-Long Island is the world’s first full-summer day camp for children with cancer and their siblings, provided completely free of charge.

Eligibility: Children who are on active treatment for cancer or who have been on treatment within the last five years and their sibling(s) are eligible to attend Sunrise Day Camp.

Sunrise Day Camp is situated on the beautiful and expansive Henry Kaufmann Campgrounds in Wheatley Heights on Long Island. Free transportation is available from select locations in Nassau, Suffolk, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and the Bronx on staffed, air-conditioned buses. The core camp day is from 9:30 am to 3:45 pm (excluding transportation times).

Daily activities include arts and crafts, music, sports, swimming, dance, science and many more. All activities are modified to meet every child’s needs and abilities. Goals include helping children develop friendships, confidence, and interpersonal skills, while enjoying the simple pleasures of childhood.

Children with cancer and their siblings often live in a world of no, but at Sunrise Day Camp,
it is a world of YES!
