Sunrise Day Camps are the world’s only full-summer day camps for children with cancer and their siblings, provided completely free of charge. The fun, friendship and smiles continue year round through various camp-like programs and in-hospital services.

 

Sunrise Day Camp-Pearl River is a proud member 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. Sunrise Day Camp–Pearl River is a joint program of the Friedberg JCC and the Rosenthal JCC, both beneficiary agencies of UJA-Federation of New York.
