Providing memorable summers since 2006 for children ages 3 1/2 –18, Sunrise Association 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 they are day camps, it allows children to continue their medical treatment and enjoy the comfort and safety of their own homes at night.
There are currently eight Sunrise Association Day Camp locations:
Long Island, NY
Staten Island, NY
Pearl River, NY
Baltimore, MD (Horizon Day Camp)
Atlanta, GA (Aurora Day Camp)
Beit Yehoshuah (Israel)
Be'er Sheva (Israel)
Ramat Yochanan (Israel)
Sunrise Association Day Camps are affiliated with over 48 renowned hospitals and medical centers around the world.
When CEO Arnie Preminger attended a benefit concert for children with terminal illness, he was inspired to begin a movement that would give children with cancer a gift that would change their lives: summer.
