Camp SunSibs
2021 VIRTUAL CAMP EXPERIENCE
May 29-31, 2021

In lieu of our traditional overnight camp experience, in 2020 we offered a free, virtual interactive camp program for our sibling campers and had a terrific time! Each of our siblings received a ‘Camp in a Box’ care package with projects, activities, and camp gifts delivered directly to their door. Although we weren’t able to meet in person, we all had a tremendous experience coming together and making a unique and trying year just a little better by seeing all of our SunSibs family!

After numerous conversations as a Planning Committee, the decision has been made that SunSibs Rocks Out (2021) will once again be virtual. This decision was made with heavy hearts as we’ll miss being able to see one another in person, however, that decision was made early so that we can make our virtual experience for our campers even better than last year and we can’t wait! We look forward to bigger and better 'Camp in a Box' deliveries, even more live activities and a ton of other fun surprises to come!

SunSibs is a weekend camp that takes place over Memorial Day weekend for children ages 5-16 who have had siblings diagnosed with cancer (on treatment, off treatment, or bereaved). SunSibs, sponsored through Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center's Division of Pediatric Oncology, provides a safe, secure, and, fun weekend camp experience for siblings of children and young adults who have been diagnosed with cancer. The program offers each participant the opportunity to experience their own uniqueness and spend time with other children who have experienced the difficult emotions that accompany having a sibling with cancer. Through an exciting camp experience, campers are given opportunities to establish strong peer relationships with others who share similar experiences and to enhance self-confidence by trying new activities offered at camp.
