Camp Sunrise, founded in 1994, is Ohio’s only summer camp program developed specifically for children impacted by HIV/AIDS. Each summer, Camp Sunrise welcomes as many as 100 children to experience the joys of friendship, the love and support of a caring community, and an encouraging environment free of the stigma surrounding HIV/AIDS. Children living with or otherwise impacted by HIV/AIDS attend free of charge and many return year after year. Camp Sunrise provides a unique opportunity for campers to experience traditional summer camp activities within a supportive, accepting, and encouraging community. Campers are divided by age into cabin groups – each with a theme chosen by campers themselves. Campers ages 16 and 17, known as the Sundogs, participate in teen-focused leadership programming in addition to general camp activities. Camp Sunrise activities focus on developing friendships, trying new and different things, and having fun. For many campers, particularly the Sundogs, Camp Sunrise is also a place to address HIV/AIDS and the role it plays in their lives. To Apply: http://www.sunrisekids.org/camper-applications
