Providing Memories Since 2017

Our Values

  • FUN IS MANDATORY Aurora is about children just being children – having fun playing and laughing together. We want every child, even if they can only attend for one day, to have the best day ever!
  • HOPE & HEALING While we cannot cure cancer, Aurora provides healing of heart, as well as the hope that each child can experience the true meaning of childhood.
  • INCLUSIVITY AND DIVERSITY Aurora is made up of people from every walk of life who recognize and embrace the particular journey that our children are on. Aurora actively seeks to create inclusive communities – whether at camp or in the hospitals – that celebrate diversity and equity among all our children and staff, while respecting both the distinctions and the commonalities that bind us together as a human family.

Our Mission

The mission of Aurora Day Camp is to bring back the joys of childhood to children with cancer and their siblings in Greater Atlanta. This mission is accomplished through our inclusive summer day camp, year-round programs and in-hospital recreational activities, all offered free of charge.  

Our Vision

We work towards a Georgia where cancer will not be the defining factor in a child’s life; where children and families navigating the difficult world of pediatric cancer can find hope, love and an extra ray of sunshine; where cultural diversity is embraced and every child is celebrated for who they are and the unique gifts they bring into the world.
