About Our Camp
The goal of this camp is to provide a successful experience. The "CAN DO" philosophy is highly emphasized as the campers are encouraged to do and try things they have never done before. At Camp of the Rising Sun, campers interact with each other; building a relationship with peers who share some of the same feelings and fears. The campers realize they are not completely alone in their disability. Camp of the Rising Sun campers learn disabilities do not limit them. Every camper has the opportunity to participate in activities adapted especially for them.
Average Cost of Camp per Camper: $300
