Camp Rising Sun is open to any child aged 5-17 who has had a diagnosis of cancer, whether they are still in treatment or in remission. Campers participate with the approval of their doctors.


Camp Rising Sun takes place at the YMCA’s Camp Jewell, located in Colebrook, Connecticut. Unfortunately, due to health and safety concerns, we won’t be offering bus transportation this year.
