Camp Sunrise at Johns Hopkins Hospital brings summer camp excitement to patients, their families, and staff members at the Pediatric Oncology and Hematology department of the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center. Held the same week as Camp Sunrise, children who are hospitalized or attending appointments in the clinic can enjoy similar summer camp experiences right at the hospital with their loved ones! Each day our campers and their siblings have the opportunity to join their peers and try exciting activities such as arts and crafts, games, indoor archery, cupcake decorating, sports, s'mores making, talent shows, tie-dye, and so much more! Undeterred by the distance, Camp at Hopkins and Camp Sunrise campers maintain connection via a daily newsletter filled with updates, photos, and the latest camp buzz.
