Special Camp Brings "Sunshine" To Kids Battling Cancer

Posted: Updated:

There are a lot of great summer camps happening around North Georgia right now. But there's only one Camp Sunshine.

Founded in 1982 by pediatric nurse Dorothy Jordan, Camp Sunshine is a place where kids battling cancer can just be kids. More than 400 campers attend a week of camp every year; there are two sessions each summer, one for children ages 7-12, and one for teens 13-18 years old. The camp takes place at Camp Twin Lakes in Rutledge -- and there's a Camp Sunshine house in Decatur where programs continue year-round.

Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken got to hang out with the young campers of Camp Sunshine -- click the videos above to check it out!
