Campers do not have access to phones except for emergencies. However, family and friends are welcome to write to campers. Please address mail to 1427 Slate Mine Road SE, Fairmount, GA 30139. Be sure to include the camper's name on the envelope and mail it early in the week so it has time to arrive at camp.
Parents can also keep up with camp happenings via Facebook.
Plenty of nutritious, delicious, made-from-scratch food is available at every meal. Those with dietary restrictions must bring their own prepared food or supplements.
Our girls' lodge provides a friendly, comfortable place to stay. Each large room houses up to eight campers, plus a counselor. A mattress, shelving, towel bars and coat hanger hooks are located at each bed. The lodge is air conditioned, keeping the temperature nice and cool even when it's hot outside. A central restroom is easily accessible via a hallway.
Each connected pair of boys' lodge rooms provides beds and mattresses for up to 9 campers, along with their counselor. Each room has a private bathroom, along with shelves, towel bars and coat hanger hooks for each camper. The back of the lodge is underground, keeping each room relatively cool in the hot summer months.
In case of accident or illness, your family insurance will be relied on to cover necessary expenses.
An advanced EMT or registered nurse is on duty at all times during summer camps. Either is prepared to deal with anything from medication and minor scrapes to a major medical emergency.
Spending money is not required. However, campers can find water bottles, T-shirts, journals, model rockets, and much more at our Treasure Chest Gift Shop. They will also love buying freshly made smoothies or milkshakes at our snack shop. When you check in, you can leave money for your camper to spend throughout the week. We'll keep it safe in our store and return the extra at the end of the week. (We recommend sending at least $50.)
Camp Sunrise maintains high standards of Christian conduct. Uncooperative or noncompliant campers are subject to dismissal.
