Camp Sunsibs 2020

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.
