Before making a cabin mate request, please consider 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.Jenn, Mother of Two Campers
