Great Days of Summer

During Great Days, kids with cancer get to just be kids! The summer program is a fun-filled for residents of Ronald McDonald House New York ages 3-21.

For six weeks, kids enjoy arts and crafts, sports, behind-the-scenes tours of the city, and activities like fishing, swimming, kayaking, and trips to the zoo. Past trips have included sightseeing at Top of the Rock, swimming & golf at country clubs, and spending the day at Rye Playland.

Great Days trips are open to our resident children as well as their siblings and caregivers, so whole families can make lasting memories together.

We also supply a team of trained staff and volunteers, specialized transportation, and safety supplies that our residents need to be safe and happy.
