Sunrise Day Camp S.T.E.A.M. Shack

WYANDANCH, NY – Suffolk County Legislature Presiding Officer DuWayne Gregory congratulated the Sunrise Association on the opening of the Laura Rosenberg S.T.E.A.M. Shack, a new program at the association’s Sunrise Day Camp in Wheatley Heights designed to offer campers the chance to learn valuable skills that can translate to future career opportunities.


For nearly 15 years, the Sunrise Association has offered free full-summer day camp for children with cancer and their siblings, with the goal of bringing back the joys of childhood to children who have had theirs taken away. 


The Laura Rosenberg S.T.E.A.M. Shack, named after a young cancer victim whose family continues to fight against childhood cancer, allows campers to learn valuable science, technology, engineering, art, and math skills in a fun environment. The programs at the Shack will help campers who have missed extended periods of school, especially those children with restricted mobility and physical limitations, make up for lost time and prepare for their future careers. Available programs include robotics, engineering, 3D printing, computer programming, and digital music production.
