Setting Up Your Bunk

Posted on

Setting up your bunk:
I pack my trunk in reverse so it’s all right on top. I first always put a fitted sheet on your bed, then sleeping bag and pillows and loveys. This gives you some we’re to sit and unpack. Next I get my lights and lanterns and fans out as it gets dark and hot fast. Make it like home you will be there a while and keep it clean and organized. Find a good spot to put your laundry bag as it’s going to get used daily also an garbage can helps keep the area clean. My camp doesn’t have large cabins with cabinets or anything so I live out of my trunk. Once all my cabin stuff is talked out I put my shirts on one side of my trunk with bras or anything else and then my pants with all undergarments and socks. This allows me to get dressed early and fast. I’m a hoodie lover even in the summer and I can’t always choose what ones to wear so I sometimes pack 5 for a week so I hang them up using hooks.

Mattress Pad

Posted on

Take an egg crate mattress pad. It can make any bunk feel like a comfy cozy bed and everyone will want to come hang out with you.

Egg Crate Foam

Posted on

If you are going to camp for the first time you probably don’t know what type of bedding to bring. Normally, the camp mattresses aren’t very thick, so if your camp allows you to, I recommend getting an egg crate to put on top of the mattress. I also have a mattress topper. I recommend getting 2 sheet sets, even if you only go for a week, because you never know what could happen. I also think that having either a warm blanket or quilt for on top of your bed is very important to keep you warm!

String Lights

Posted on

Consider packing fun string lights, battery operated clip-on fans or reading lights for bunks too.  Your bunk is your special space so decorating with pictures and stuff from home might also help prevent homesickness.  (Remember tacks or tape for photos).  A pack of Command hooks could come in handy too.
