Mission Statement

Sunrise Association is the umbrella organization for Sunrise Day Camp Pearl River. Presently one of three U.S. based Day Camps specifically for Pediatric Cancer Patients and their siblings. All Children go for free.

The goals of Sunrise is to allow all children with cancer the right to forget about cancer and to enjoy being a child. Create a safe place where fun exists and many times change the course of a child's life through fun and hope.

We aim to open up Sunrise Day Camps where ever there is a need and expand our Sunrise on Wheels program both nationally and globally

Description

The goals of Sunrise Day Camps is to create a network of Day Camps where any child and their siblings, can go and enjoy themselves, away from the daily routine of clinical care. Forget about illness and enjoy playing and having fun.

Day Camps allow children who maybe too ill to go away, or require the emotional support of their siblings and families.

All camps have experienced healthcare professionals on staff and other support teams available. The camp time often allows a caregiver or parent time to away from caregiving, while having peace of mind knowing their child is in good hands and enjoying themselves.

Sunrise does not end along with Summer, we als runSunrise on Wheels, a hospital based programs throughout the tir-state area, where pediatric patients are entertained and do fun activities while at the hospital. A great venue for volunteers as well.
