Camp Sunrise: Empowering children and families impacted by HIV/AIDS since 1994

Camp Sunrise, founded in 1994 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, is Ohio’s only summer camp program developed specifically for children impacted by HIV/AIDS. Each summer, Camp Sunrise welcomes as many as 100 children to experience the joys of friendship, the love and support of a caring community, and an encouraging environment free of the stigma surrounding HIV/AIDS.


Camp Sunrise is a place where you hear people laughing – not just children, but teens and adults alike. It is a place where the worries of the world do not touch a little piece of heaven that we get to live in, even if only for a week.
