Sunrise Day Camp
Sunrise Day Camps are the world’s only dedicated day camps for children with cancer and their siblings, provided completely free of charge.
Providing memorable summers since 2006 for children ages 3 ½ to 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 seven Day Camps operated by Sunrise Association.
Sunrise On Wheels
Ever see a child not want to leave a hospital because they’re having too much fun?
At Sunrise on Wheels, it happens every day!
Sunrise on Wheels is an innovative program that provides a day filled with Sunrise fun to children awaiting treatment in pediatric oncology units of participating hospitals. Volunteers wheel a rainbow trunk bursting with toys, games, and activities right into many of our affiliated hospitals and change what could have been a bleak and depressing day into a day of camp fun!
Celebrating its seventh year, Sunrise on Wheels currently brings fun to more than 2,000 children in 12 hospitals — in New York, New Jersey and in Israel. Each Sunrise on Wheels location serves a large number of children ranging from toddlers to young adults.
Sunrise S.T.E.A.M. Shack
The Laura Rosenberg S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Education, Art and Math) Shack at Sunrise Day Camp – Long Island is PROJECTED to be opened in summer of 2017.
Children with cancer often miss long periods of school, thereby falling behind their peers. For those children attending Sunrise Day Camp – Long Island, The Laura Rosenberg S.T.E.A.M. Shack will be a place where campers can learn valuable skills that could translate into future career opportunities while they interact with other campers who are facing similar learning struggles.
In Laura Rosenberg Foundation S.T.E.A.M. Shack, campers will have the opportunity to learn the following skills: Computer Coding, Digital DJ / Music Production, Web Design Photoshop, 3D Design Robotics And more!
