The most common reasons why bunking requests are denied are:
- The request was not reciprocal.
- The request was entered after the deadline.
- You submitted a negative request (ie. “Do not bunk my camper with…”).
Campers entering our trainee program (rising 10th through 12th graders – STs, CAs, and CITs) do not submit bunk requests. Campers in these programs will be mixed randomly into bunks, which has proven successful with our trainee groups in the past.
Campers usually make new friends quickly when living in bunks with 10-14 other campers of the same grade level. Each bunk typically has three counselors who help create positive relationships between campers and generate a sense of bunk identity. At least one counselor is always on duty with the campers, even at night, and supervision is age-appropriate at all times.
