A Wading River summer camp has opened its doors for victims of superstorm Sandy to enjoy hot showers, cooked meals, and warm beds — free of charge.

Camp DeWolfe on Route 25A re-opened Thursday after Sandy swept through the area and camp officials decided to help those in need.

“As a non-profit, we will feel the effects of Hurricane Sandy for months to come,” camp officials said in a statement. “But, in this time of need, we are happy to be able to offer support to our community and those less fortunate than us.”

The camp will be open on the following select dates in November and December for victims to use the facility’s showers, eat fresh cooked meals and rest on the complex’s Tempur-pedic beds:

• Nov. 26 – 28
• Nov. 28 – 30
• Dec. 1 – 3
• Dec. 7 – 9
• Dec. 14 – 16

Camp DeWolfe will also welcome volunteer teams from across New York City and Long Island to use the facility as a home base while they “serve those most in need.”

For more information about the program, contact the office at (631) 929-4325 or call Matt Tees at the same number to see how you can help the camp’s Sandy relief efforts.
