Two lean-tos or open camps are available to SUNY Cortland alumni, faculty/staff, guests and students by reservation. The lean-tos are accessible by water/ice only and are approximately a two-mile paddle/hike from Antlers. Canoes may be rented from Antlers for $15 per day with prior notice. There is no fee associated with the reservation and use of the Camp Marion lean-tos; however, they must be reserved to ensure the lean-to you are hoping to use is available.
A remote, rustic cabin located on the South Bay of Raquette Lake, the cabin is rented by the week running from Monday to Sunday. The electric-free getaway sleeps eight.
We will have three options for winter camp: Feb. 17-23, 17-19, or 19-23. Join us for a three-, five- or seven-day stay to ski, snowshoe, relax by the fire, read in the library or whatever you choose. Please note this is an adults-only alumni camp.

Information will be posted in February/March. There will be opportunities to help open camp for the season, assist with the soil and rain garden project and walkways, and other facility and program enhancing projects. We hope to be completing any work in the Main Lodge with the bathroom upgrades, and adding cubbies and coat hooks in the entry porches. There is some work in the upper hallway and bedrooms that we will accomplish in May as well. Contact Deb Faylo if you are interested in helping, and if you have any special thoughts for projects (space will be limited for project work).
