Camp Rising Sun exists so that all who come can have fun, improve familiar skills, learn new skills and develop self-confidence by joining in camp activities in a secure positive place.
Camp Rising Sun is a camp for children who have been diagnosed with cancer. Children ages 6 - 18 attend camp free of charge. Camp is staffed by volunteer counselors who give a week of their time, love and energy. We have a pediatric oncologist and three nurses on campus 24-hours a day to tend to medical needs.
Camp Rising Sun started with 8 children in its first year and this past summer which marked our 20th season, 100 children enrolled for a week of fun and friendship.
