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.
