Camp Sunrise provides a unique opportunity experience traditional summer camp activities within a supportive, accepting, and encouraging community. Campers are divided by age into cabin groups – each with a theme chosen by campers themselves. Campers ages 16 and 17, known as the Sundogs, participate in teen-focused leadership programming in addition to general camp activities.
Camp Sunrise activities focus on developing friendships, trying new and different things, and having fun. For many campers, particularly the Sundogs, Camp Sunrise is also a place address HIV/AIDS and the role it plays in their lives.
Children spend their days doing a variety of activities, including arts & crafts, sports, music, swimming, high ropes, and more. Nighttime activities include campfires, pool parties, movie nights, karaoke, and talent shows.
I like coming to Camp Sunrise because I know I can be myself and not be judged. I love all the support I have and the activities are so much fun.
