Camp Sunrise is a volunteer-driven, cost free, week-long, overnight summer camp held during the first week of August. Our 187-acre campground has hiking trails throughout and diverse ecosystems including wetlands, creeks, old growth trees, and forests. At the hub are rustic wood cabins, a “Funny Farm,” where campers receive onsite medical care, a dining hall with full kitchen, a fully accessible pool, covered pavilions, a basketball court, and large playing fields.
Our unique environment allows campers to lean on each other, share their thoughts and fears, and come together to share similar experiences. Campers who are currently being treated, have completed treatment, or have undergone a bone marrow transplant are eligible to attend the camp.
Campers must be between the ages of 4-18, and includes a day camp for ages 4 and 5, a residential camp for ages 6-16, and a Leader-in-Training Program for campers 17 and 18 years of age. Activities throughout the week include swimming, arts and crafts, sports and games, newsletter, field trips, campfires, archery, nature walks, and the fun-filled Friday night dance, and so much more! Johns Hopkins Pediatric Oncology physicians and nurses volunteer their time and are on-site 24/7 to ensure optimal medical care during the campers’ time away from home.
