Sunrise Day Camp
Raymond Y. Davoodi of The Atlantis Organization is quoted as saying “Our Organization is very dedicated to the Sunrise Association – we attend all their functions, we make Sunrise the leading beneficiary of our charity fundraisers, and our family donates every year. Aside from our financial contributions, The Sunrise Annual Kids Day is one of our favorite days of the year and the kids at the camp look forward to it as much as we do – it is fulfilling beyond words. This organization is led by people like David Miller and Beth Fetner who give selflessly, and are leaders in our community in every way. We are proud to support them and the Sunrise Association. Let’s do this for the kids!”
More about The Sunrise Associations
Sunrise Day Camps are the world’s only dedicated day camps for children with cancer and their siblings, provided completely free of charge. They have been providing memorable summers since 2006 for children ages 3 1/2 to 16, Sunrise Day Camps bring the simple pleasures of childhood back to children struggling with cancer, changing months of loneliness and isolation into summers filled with sunshine, laughter and happiness. And because Sunrise is a day camp, it does all this while allowing the children to continue their medical treatment and enjoy the comfort and safety of their own homes at night. There are currently seven Day Camps – three in New York, three in Israel and Horizon Day Camp in Maryland. Sunrise Association Day Camps are affiliated with 30 renowned hospitals and medical centers. Sunrise Sundays and Fun-days offer children exciting activities and events when school is not in session; Sunrise on Wheels is a one-of-a-kind program that provides hours of Sunrise-fun to children undergoing treatment in pediatric oncology units of participating hospitals.
Sunrise Day Camps are proud members of the Sunrise Association, whose mission is to bring back the joys of childhood to children with cancer and their siblings world-wide, through the creation of Sunrise Day Camps, Year-Round Programs and In-Hospital Recreational Activities, all offered free of charge.
