Camp Open Arms

This year Camp Open Arms will be held August 2-6, for ages 5-12. We also have a brand-new location for camp this year. Camp will be held at the Rochester Rotary Sunshine Camp in Rush, NY. The 157-acre campus offers state of the art experiences for campers including a rock climbing wall, zipline, Olympic size swimming pool, archery range, outdoor trails, and a giant wooden treehouse. This location will give all of our campers a true day camp experience for the entire week. Contact Carin Adams if you have any questions at cadams@gildasclubrochester.org

Noogieland

Come join the fun at Noogieland! It’s more than a playroom -- it’s a place where children impacted by cancer can connect with others through creative play. Children will use their imagination on our pirate ship playhouse, or develop relationships with others through crafts and creative play.

Staff and volunteers are ready to interact and support the kids while parents are attending support groups and programs.

Family Social Events

Always a blast, our family social events provide a time for families to connect with others going through the same experiences in a casual, relaxed environment. Past events have included picnics, holiday parties, movie nights and classes in cooking, art and dancing. Don’t miss out on the chance to find support while having fun!

Teens

Hang out with other teenagers in our unique teen room. Young volunteers join us on Monday and Wednesday evenings to spend time with our teens who can enjoy karaoke, crafts, movie nights, the Wii and other games. And our teen members never miss the annual lock-in -- a fun 24 hours of hanging out with their friends!
