Online via Google Classroom

The Arthritis Society is committed to ensuring children affected by arthritis and other rheumatic diseases have a memorable summer camp experience. For more information on Camp Sunrise please email

More information on our next Camp Sunrise will be available in early 2022. In the meantime, visit our Club Sunrise page to learn about our year-round virtual offerings and opportunities to connect with others living with arthritis.

About Camp Sunrise

Over the course of two weeks, you will be grouped into a virtual cabin with other campers and a counsellor. Every few days you’ll be given a fun challenge that you have the option of completing either individually or as a group. For every challenge you complete, you’ll earn a prize! In addition to the online challenges, you will have the opportunity to connect with campers outside your cabin group, and have video conferences to learn strategies to help you manage your disease and the challenges that may come with it.  

This program is built with flexibility in mind, so don’t worry if you can’t participate in every activity. We  know that summer is here and with that often comes an unpredictable schedule. All you need to participate is an open mind, a willingness to interact with others in an online environment and a device you can use to connect to Google Classrooms and Zoom. If you don’t have a device or access to the internet, please reach out to us at and we will do our best to find a way for you to participate.   

At Camp Sunrise you will be understood and accepted. We will celebrate you, challenge you and connect you with a supportive community.

Questions? Please email and we will get back to you ASAP.
