For children with the rare illness, Xeroderma Pigmentosum (a.k.a. XP), sunlight is a fatal enemy. Their condition forces them to live completely isolated from the daytime lives of their peers to avoid burns or even cancer. Camp Sundown, a summer camp in New York State, was conceived and established thanks to the determination of parents who have children with this particular illness. There, the night hours become the privileged moment when the children can play freely and learn to live with their condition.
