Kiwanis just completed six new cabins and a 58 by 35 ft. open sided pavilion with picnic tables.
Each cabin has six double bunk beds.
“We’re looking to generate some income so we’re looking to rent the camp out on weekends for stag and does or whatever,” Kiwanis spokesman Dan Inverarity said.
This also helps generate money to keep the camp operating.
The Kiwanis subsidizes the camp so that kids from families who otherwise can’t attend camp can enjoy a week of nature during the summer.
The public can rent the camp basically from Friday evening though to Sunday afternoon because the kids’ camp only runs weekly from Sunday to Friday.
After the kids’ camp ends in late August the public will be able to rent Sunshine Point even on weekdays into the early fall.
The $750 is an “approximate price,” Inverarity, a Windsor realtor, says.
“If they’re going to be drinking liquor they have to have a rider, they have to bring their own insurance policy or pay us and we have to charge them more.”
But the camp is ideal for weekend parties where participants can stay overnight and avoid drinking and driving.
Kiwanis will be marketing to the public soon but the club has been focused on the $200,000 renewal project, which just ended.
This included new larger cabins to replace the old ones believed donated by the Heinz Co., and previously used by migrant workers, back in the late 1940s.
As well, there’s a new pavilion, with plenty of electrical in case a band needs plug-ins for amplifiers.
“We can rent it out for bands, we can rent it out for wedding receptions, we have a huge kitchen, we can take a lot of people, we have a pool, we have an archery range, we have a fire pit,” he said.
