Camp is a place where magic happens and people meet lifelong friends!
Each summer, more than 2,500 children and young-adult campers (ages 7 to 21 years old) with disabilities take advantage of this 157-acre campground in Rush, N.Y. It is the only camp facility of its kind in Greater Rochester that gives children with special needs unique overnight camping experiences.
Rochester Rotary Sunshine Campus is owned by Rochester Rotary Charitable Trusts Inc. and operated by the Rochester Rotary Club. The facility hosts summer camps held by Rochester Rotary as well as eight partner agencies.
Sunshine Campus offers state-of-the-art experiences for campers, including a rock climbing wall, zipline, Olympic sized swimming pool, archery course, fully accessible wooden treehouse, and the Gizzi Family Sensory Center.
Since 1922, Rochester Rotary Sunshine Camp has supported children and young adults with developmental and physical challenges. Each summer more than 2,500 campers enjoy our 157-acre campus located in Rush, NY.
Maple trees that adorn the property absorb and retain the summer sunshine, and love and laughter that emanate from our campers, staff, and Rotary members. As such, the trees are later tapped and Rochester Rotary is able to produce the finest Pure New York Maple Syrup. Started by Butch Alexander in 2018.
