Can my child be in the same cabin as a friend or family member?

Yes. Each camper may request one cabin mate of the same age and gender. We cannot accommodate more than one cabin mate per camper because it can have a negative impact on the other campers. Please email us at least two weeks before your session to make a cabin mate request.

Before making a cabin mate request, please think about this thought from Jenn, who is mom to two children in Girls Camp (ages 10 and 13):

“I feel strongly that summer camp should not be a place for my children to hang out with their “home friends.” I thought it was important that they bunk with unacquainted kids as a way to encourage independence and overcome the anxiety of the unfamiliar. Meeting new cabin mates and cultivating relationships are the hallmarks of a true summer camp experience. These are skills they will need as they continue to grow and mature. I appreciate the camp supporting my wishes and helping my kids to develop new treasured, lifelong friendships that extend beyond the boundaries of their school yard.”
