Camp Sunrise is a week-long summer camp in Crownsville, Maryland, for
children who have been diagnosed with or have survived cancer. The camp is maintained
and sponsored by Johns Hopkins Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center. Campers are given the opportunity to establish strong peer relationships with
the other children they can relate to that are going through the same
experiences and feelings as they are with their cancer treatment.
At Camp Sunrise, campers also gain independence from the regimen of cancer
treatment, and enhance their self-confidence by trying new activities offered
while attending the camp.
