Camp Sunrise is turning 23!

Every summer since 1994,

Camp Sunrise has welcomed 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.

This year, we are having a week full of holidays!

Come join us as we celebrate a year’s worth of holidays at our week at camp. Be prepared be spooked on Halloween. Gifted at Christmas. Loved on Valentines Day and celebrated on Independence Day!

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.

Camp Sunrise Camper

“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.”
