Since we opened our doors, we have served more than 600 Ohio children living with or otherwise impacted by HIV/AIDS. They attend free of charge and many return year after year.

Children living with HIV/AIDS
Camp Sunrise welcomes children ages 6-17 who are living with HIV/AIDS – at any stage of the disease. All children must be aware of their disease status before attending Camp Sunrise.

Children impacted by HIV/AIDS
Camp Sunrise recognizes that HIV/AIDS impacts the family unit as a whole and sometimes multiple generations within the same family; thus, we also welcome children ages 6-17 who have a sibling, parent, or caretaker living with the disease, or who are grieving the loss of a loved one to AIDS.

Inability to pay is not a factor. We offer our camp program at no expense to the child or the family, including the cost of transportation and/or other necessities.

When you have AIDS, you have a feeling of being separate and no longer part of the world. At Camp Sunrise, everyone belongs; everyone has a home. No one goes an hour without a hug or someone cheering them on.
