Camp Sunrise Open-Air Cabin Program

Looking for a nice, cool place to spend this summer? Here's one for you! This summer (2003), Camp Sunrise begins its Open-Air Cabin Program with the initial offering of a single open-air cabin for rent, Cabin 42. Cabin 42 accommodates up to six campers and is available for advanced-rental for the 2003 summer season at a very attractive pre-season rate. This offer is on a per-month basis for the months June, July, August, and September. Since only one cabin is presently part of the program, we can only offer one month slots on a first come, first serve basis. If you are interested, please contact the camp director, Deborah Grodner, as soon as possible to receive an application. In following years, additional open-air cabins will be made available to families, relatives, friends, and/or associates. A description of Cabin 42, associated camp facilities, program features, costs, and how to apply follows.

Cabin 42 And Facilities

Cabin 42 is located on a wooded hill in the Southwest section of the camp. It is a short walk from the dining hall, fishing and boat dock, and swimming area. The cabin is called an open air-cabin because the entire building is surrounded by newly installed screens, which allows air to freely move in and through the structure. Also, in the manner of traditional of camp cabins, there is no insulation.

The cabin exterior is made of chestnut with an asphalt-tiled roof. The interior of the cabin is a single open space, 18 feet x 18 feet. The cabin is appointed with decorative curtains, table, lamp, love seat, dresser, mirror, a locker for storage of equipment, toys, and valuables, two wooden bunk beds and two iron single beds, all furnished with thin plastic covered mattresses.

There are two overhead lights and electrical outlets on three of the four sides of the room and a required fire exit built into the back wall. Note: Bedding (sheets, blankets, sleeping bags, pillows, etc.) and toilet supplies (towels, washcloths, toiletries, etc.) are supplied by the cabin occupants.

Bathrooms. Campers use a public, open air, gender-separated bathroom facility consisting of newly installed flush toilets and hot water showers. Dining. Campers have a choice of participating in a Camp Sunrise Meal Plan or to bring or buy food in town. The large outdoor dining hall seats 200 persons.
