Camp Week

Filled with fun, friendship, and surprises, we call this “the BEST week of summer”…and we think you will, too!
Summer Camp

Experience summer camp in a safe, nurturing environment under the supervision of a well-trained and caring staff. Camp Rising Sun is open to all Connecticut and Rhode Island children, ages 5–17, who have ever had cancer or who are currently being treated for it. Children from other states are also eligible and will be considered on a first-come, first-serve basis.

2024 Camp Week: August 18 – 23

The goal of Camp Rising Sun is essentially to give campers the most fun experience we possibly can. Campers will participate in a wide variety of activities—everything from traditional summer camp fare like horseback riding, rock climbing, and arts & crafts to special events like our talent show, dance, and our own fireworks show. All activities are under the supervision of trained leaders and each camper can participate at his or her own level.
