Camp is a place where magic happens and people meet lifelong friends!

Rochester Rotary Sunshine Campus is a fully accessible residential summer camp that has met the needs of children with paralysis and other physical challenges and their families since 1922.

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.

Hollowed Harvest at the Sunshine Camp

The Sunshine Camp is excited to welcome the Hollowed Harvest to the Rochester area this Halloween season! After a terrific debut last year in the Capital Region, the Hollowed Harvest is expanding to a new location right here in Rush, NY! Visitors to the Hollowed Harvest in Rush, will experience dozens of larger-than-life displays, some towering as tall as 2 stories and spanning more than 50 feet in length! Attendees can expect to take about 35-40 minutes to walk through the event. We look forward to hosting this family-friendly event this fall to make your Halloween the best yet!
