Providing Joy to Children with Cancer and Their Siblings Since 2006

For children from 3 ½ to 16 years old

Sunrise Association Day Camps and year-round programs bring back childhood pleasures to children struggling with cancer

Sunrise changes months of loneliness and isolation into summers filled with sunshine, laughter and happiness. Sunrise Day Camps are the only summer day camps for children with cancer and their siblings, provided 100% free of charge. Since they are day camps, children can continue their medical treatment and enjoy the comfort and safety of their own homes at night.

How It All Began

The Sunrise Association Day Camps began as a “dream” of Arnie Preminger, Founder, President & CEO of the Sunrise Association. After attending a benefit concert for Paul Newman’s Hole in the Wall Gang Camp (a sleep-away camp for children with life-threatening illness), the dream began.

Having built and operated summer day camps for more than 30 years at the Friedberg JCC, Arnie researched the existence of summer-long day camps for children with cancer, but to his surprise, found none.

Programs Throughout The World

Sunrise magic shines brightly from coast to coast in the US and beyond and to children everywhere, through the opening of new camps and multiple in-hospital programs.
