CAMP RISING SUN
Camp Rising Sun is a camp for children living in Mississippi, Alabama and southwestern Tennessee, ages 6-16, who have been or are currently being treated for cancer. The goal of Camp Rising Sun is to provide these children with a traditional camp experience while recognizing and meeting their health needs.
Camp Rising Sun accepts children in all stages of their illness and treatment, provided they have approval from their physicians and parental consent. Campers may attend with a sibling on a space available basis.
Of primary importance is our medical staff which closely monitors the needs of each of our campers. Medical personnel and equipment are on location 24 hours a day. The camp clinic is staffed by doctors and nurses whose responsibilities are to follow medical orders from each camper's physician to insure that treatments are maintained during their time at camp. The staff is available to administer oral chemotherapy, drug therapy and all other medical treatments.
