Camp Sunshine

What began as a summer camp for 44 children with cancer in 1983 is now a year-round resource for hundreds of these special kids and their families. At the Camp Sunshine House in Decatur, weekly programs include support for families dealing with cancer, and educational opportunities with pediatric oncology professionals. Week-long and weekend camping trips are held at Camp Twin Lakes-Rutledge, about an hour east of Atlanta, with programs specially designed for younger kids, teens and entire families. While donations of money are always welcome, the camp also accepts board games, sporting equipment, crafting items and paper products. Find out how you can help at
