The Sunrise Experience - Virtual Camp 2021
About Sunrise: Sunrise Day Camps are the only full-summer day camps in the world for children with cancer and their siblings, ages 3 ½ - 16 who are within five years of active or follow-up treatment for cancer. Unlike most oncology sleepaway camps that are offered for only 1-2 weeks each summer, Sunrise Day Camps allow children to attend camp for as little as one day or for the entire summer. Being a day camp allows children who are in active treatment to continue with their home doctors and enjoy the comfort of sleeping in their own beds each night. Our mission at Sunrise is to bring back the joys of childhood to children with cancer and their siblings world-wide, through the creation of Sunrise/Horizon/Aurora Day Camps, Year-Round Programs and In-Hospital Recreational Activities, all offered free of charge.
This year, Sunrise Studios, our newly created branch of the Sunrise Association, is launching the Sunrise Experience: Virtual Camp 2021. After successfully running in-person camp programs for 15 years, we pivoted due to the Covid-19 pandemic and our 2020 campers experienced all the fun and excitement of our in-person programs through virtual activities. This year’s Sunrise Experience will expand on our success, inspiring new skills, friendships and the magic of summer camp from the comfort of home or a hospital.
We will have a combination of pre-recorded videos and live zoom sessions, designed for every age group, just like camp! Virtual campers can watch activity videos at any time, and also join live pre-scheduled zoom sessions with our fabulous camp counselors and their camp peers! Activities will include art, S.T.E.A.M, drama, games, music, fitness and movement and so much more! This program is open to all eligible campers, as noted above, just like our in-person camps. Campers can participate in virtual camp through our Sunrise Studios App.
