Camp Sunrise is operated by a Camp Director, Staff Director, Programming Director, CIT Director, and a Medical Director from the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center's Divison of Pediatric Oncology. All leadership staff, counselors and activity staff are volunteers.
The staff foregoes personal vacation time each year to spend a week at Camp Sunrise. They devote over 100% of themselves to making sure that each and every child has an experience they will remember forever.

The Counselor In Training (CIT) Program is designed to help 17 and 18 year olds make the transition from camper to counselor.
Throughout the week of camp, they serve as helpers, leaders, and role models for our 4 to 16 year old campers. Responsibility and leadership will be developed through the CIT program training process.
We do ask CITs to be previous campers at Camp Sunrise.
