Camp Open Arms

Camp Open Arms will be held August 2022 for ages 5-12 and we will have a brand-new location for camp! 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 our campers a true day camp experience for the entire week. Contact Carin Adams if you have any questions at

Break-Week Program

As a parent or guardian with cancer, school breaks can be especially challenging. Here at Gilda’s, we offer a break-week program where our staff and volunteers engage with your children during school breaks with creative art projects, trips to the movie theater, and more.


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 imaginative play. Whether they are pretending to battle pirates on the pirate ship playhouse or developing relationships with other kids through crafts and creative play, Noogieland has something for every child. While parents are attending support groups and programs, staff and volunteers are ready to interact and support the kids.
