Cabin Placement

Perhaps the single biggest factor in a child’s adjustment to camp is his bunk placement. Several weeks each spring are devoted to making up bunks based on information gleaned from personal visits, phone conversations, and notes about a boy’s particular likes and dislikes.

Compatibility, experience and interests are the main considerations when placing boys together in a bunk. Other criteria, such as age and grade level are easily met because of the number of boys in each age group. The ability to make compatible groupings is a major advantage of having forty to sixty boys of the same age and grade.

“Just wanted to thank you and your amazing staff for helping to make Matthew’s first year at Takajo such a success.

He got off the bus and was quiet and looked a little sad so I asked him what was wrong and he said, “I want to go back to camp, I’m not ready to come home.” If that is not a sign of an amazing summer, I don’t know what is!!! Nothing could make me happier!! As much as I missed him I am so happy that he didn’t miss me!! He was too busy having the “best summer ever at the best camp ever!!” (his words).

I also want to thank you for all the phone calls and the little bit of “hand holding” for this first time mom. I think I needed more attention then Matthew this summer! I promise, I will be much better next year!!”
