Beach Camp

Connect to Campers & Pictures

We encourage camper families to contact their campers during their stay. However, non-emergency visits or phone calls are disruptive to the camp program, so please plan to write letters or email your camper.

Some parents choose to write letters and postcards prior to the camper week, and leave them with the camp staff to distribute.  Please do not send any mail to the church.

Campers can receive email!  Email to campers will be printed out each day.  Please know that email is not private and may be viewed by camp staff who sort mail prior to email distribution. We use a system to regulate our email to protect us from viruses and to help cover the cost of printing each email to pass along to the camper. To email your camper, you’ll either need to set up an account or sign in to the account you previously created. 

To set up a new account:
1. Read the following instructions and then click the link below
2. Click “Need an Account or have an invitation code” at the top of the page

Email Replies:
Campers are not allowed to use a computer or cell phone to reply to emails. Campers can reply using stationary purchased through Bunk1.  Here’s how to purchase Bunk Replies:
1. Purchase credits through Bunk1 – The same process as Camper Email.
2. Use the credits for Bunk Reply Stationary – Send this stationary with your camper to camp or include it in an email you send to them.
3. Campers will hand write replies and give it to camp staff.
4. Camp staff will send the reply to Bunk1 and it will be uploaded to your Bunk1 account.

If you are purchasing stationary, please let campers know you would like them to fill it out. It is not camp’s responsibility to have your camper fill out the Bunk Reply.

Online Photos:
Parents will be able to view online photos of camp during the week. A few photos of each day will be uploaded on Tuesday and Thursday. For pictures, you will need to set up/sign in to your Bunk1 account (instructions above). Viewing pictures is free and each high quality photo download is $0.99. You may also purchase photo gifts at their website. For your camper’s safety, pictures are password protected. The password will be emailed to your family email the week before your camp session.  Please add info@crosstrails.org as a contact to ensure that we are not caught in your spam filter.

Photos, as well as bunk Notes and Bunk Replies, can be viewed easily on the Bunk1 mobile app. You can also upload a photo of your camper and Bunk1’s facial recognition system can alert you every time a photo of your camper is uploaded.
