Brighter Days

Here's a program that may be useful to families of children with cancer in Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee:

Cancer is a devastating disease that affects many individuals regardless of their age. Camp Rising Sun understood this and made it their mission to provide a traditional camp experience while recognizing and meeting the health needs of children with cancer.

Camp Rising Sun is a summer camp program located in Columbus, Mississippi that enables children with cancer between the ages of 6 and 16 to attend camp for a week at no charge. The summer camp is open to children living in Alabama, Mississippi, and Southwestern Tennessee who have been or are currently being treated for cancer.


Throughout the camp program children are encouraged to participate in a range of fun activities. A few of the activities offered include: swimming, horseback riding, arts & crafts, boating dances, and a talent show. Parents do not have to worry about their child's physical limitations or endurance because each program offered by Camp Rising Sun respects the challenges and limitations of each individual's capabilities. Camp Rising Sun also has medical staff and personnel on location 24 hours a day. The camp's clinic is staffed by doctors and nurses who are available to administer oral chemotherapy, drug therapy and all other medical treatments.

Camp Rising Sun recognizes the financial challenges medically-related expenses have on a family. In addition to offering camp free of charge to campers, transportation assistance may also be available in some situations. For more information or to apply for summer camp call (662) 327-8352.
