VIDEO: A Place Where the Sunrise Lasts All Day Long

Stacey Sweet takes you inside a special camp for children with cancer.

Simply, put — it's one of the world's most beautiful places. Sunrise Day Camp is the only day camp in the nation for kids with cancer and their siblings and it's right here on Long Island.  

Join Stacey Sweet and videographer, Tom Zweibel, as they follow the sunrise and the stories of some truly amazing campers.

Sunrise Day Camp serves children ages 3-16 and the camp is provided free of charge to children being treated for cancer. The camp is run by the Barry and Florence Friedberg JCC.

I have multiple friends who have worked at Sunrise and I have only heard amazing things about this camp. It truly does sound like an unbelievable place for these kids. Nice story, Stacey.

Why did my comment about Don Imus' camp for kids with cancer get deleted? Why didn't you just straighten out YOUR incorrect story that "Sunrise Day Camp is the only day camp in the nation for kids with cancer..." He deserves kudos not to be ignored. Hmmmm...."Sweetgate..."

There is a difference between a "DAY" camp, and a sleep-away camp. Sunrise IS the only DAY camp in the nation for children with cancer and their siblings. The Imus camp is sleep-away for children with cancer. However, I'm not sure why there needs to be conflict about it. Sure, Imus deserves kudos for his camp...but this story was about an amazing day camp called Sunrise. That's all.

Hey Concerned Citizen. You seemed more CONCERNED about being right, than anything else. Lol. Suggest you work on your reading comprehension as Heather so correctly pointed out. Way to derail a thread about a positive thing.
