Philanthropy: Aurora Summer Day Camps


May 24 @ 8:00 am - July 15 @ 5:00 pm

Aurora Day Camp brings the simple pleasures of childhood back to children struggling with cancer, changing months of loneliness and isolation into moments filled with sunshine, laughter and happiness. Aurora Day Camp 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 worldwide. Sunrise accomplishes this through the creation and oversight of welcoming, inclusive summer day camps, year-round programs and in-hospital recreational activities, all offered free of charge.

They are in need volunteers for three upcoming events this summer and would be so grateful for help. Please feel free to reach out to Bill Cowen with any questions: bill.cowen@katzmedia.com.
