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 Camp 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 Camp 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.
Sunshine Camp is Celebrating 100 Years!
This year the Rochester Rotary Sunshine Camp is celebrating our 100th anniversary of serving those with disabilities in our community. Throughout the year we will be celebrating this milestone through numerous programs, our major fundraising events, and an anniversary celebration this fall at the Camp.
We would not be able to support city youth and those with disabilities if it wasn’t for the incredible generosity of our donors.
We hope you celebrate with us!
