@Kerry, our Challenger campers have one cabin for boys and 1 cabin for girls so there is no need to fill out a bunk request for that program. For the Two-Week program yes, a bunk request would be helpful

Emma M (she/her) Assistant Leadership and Trips Director
49:48
@Allison Yes!
Alison Lum (she/her) Summer Camp Director
49:50
@Linus - all campers and staff are responsible for the care of our land and spaces here at CCO! That's something we see is important, so there are some elements of camp that we ask all of our camp to help keep our spaces clean! That may look like keeping your cabin clean, or picking up litter around camp. And we have scheduled time for all of us to help clean up camp!
Jack McCray
49:51
We heard something about plastic covers around the bunks at night. Is this true?
Laura Kott

Jack McCray

Emma M (she/her) Assistant Leadership and Trips Director
51:54
@Linus, yes! Your counselors will absolutely wake you!
Michael Ohl (he, him) Camp Executive
51:55
@Linus, great question! We want to make sure that everyone gets good sleep so if you need it, make sure you talk to your counselors to ensure you can get what you need
Linus Milheiser (he/him)

I know this is literally on the staff's mind daily... but, it's my daughter's first time at an overnight camp and she is SO EXCITED! And, I'm trying to put her at ease that just because she might have to wear a mask, it's still going to be super fun, right?!?!

I have two kids. I can't seem to figure out how to upload separate info for each kid. do I just upload two separate immunization files, etc.?
Allison Peers
01:03:35
If you are young for your grade, can you bunk with your peers? e.g my daughter will be 10 during camp but going into 6th grade so her friend is 11. (Allison's mom)

01:03:36
Will we learn who our counselor is before we get to camp?
Paige Castaneda

And - the older 14 year old has biking included as part of his experience. he wants to know if he brings his helmet and gloves. I don't think he brings a bike, right? or do we bring the bike too?
