Camp Sunrise Volunteers

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 Division of Pediatric Oncology. All leadership staff, counselors and activity staff are volunteers. They devote over 100% of themselves to making sure that each and every child has an experience they will remember forever.

Counselor In Training (CIT) Program

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.
