Support Camp Rising Sun
Throughout Camp Rising Sun’s history, campers have been able to attend completely free of charge. This is made possible through the generous contributions of our many supporters. Your contribution in any amount will help us ensure that Camp Rising Sun remains open and free to our amazing kids.

Camp Rising Sun is operated almost entirely by volunteers. We’re always looking for people with a little — or a lot — of time to dedicate to our campers. Here are a few opportunities:
- Activity Leader — come up to camp during Camp Week and lead an activity for our campers. If you have a special skill that you can share with our campers, this is a great opportunity for you!
- Annual Night Out Fundraiser — our annual event at the Owenego in Branford is our biggest fundraiser and requires a lot of helping hands — from planning to checking tickets to helping run the raffle and silent auction, we could use your help!
- Cabin Counselor — spend Mini-Camp Weekend and Camp Week in a cabin with a group of our campers, helping to ensure a fun and safe week. Please see our staff page for more information on requirements and registration information.
