Lutheran Camp Chrysalis

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 and faxes
to campers can not be accepted. Some parents choose to write letters and postcards
prior to the camp week, and leave them with the camp staff to distribute. If you
would like to write to your camper from home, please mail very early. Write to:

(Camper Name and Program)
Camp Chrysalis
391 Upper Turtle Creek Rd
Kerrville, TX 78028

Campers can receive email!  Email to campers will be printed out each morning at 10:00 am for afternoon mail call.  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 it along to the camper.  To email your camper, you’ll need a Bunk1 account:

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.

Both Bunk Notes and Bunk Replies, as well as photos, can be viewed easily on the Bunk1 mobile app.

Summer Photos:
Online Photos:
Parents will be able to view online photos of camp during the week. Photos of each day will be updated overnight for viewing the next day. 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.

Group Photo:
Upon arrival, campers and parents may purchase a group photo for their week of camp. It will be an 8×10 photo and will have all campers, staff, and information about the week printed on it. Photos will be matted together with a 5″x7″ photo of the cabin group. Campers who order this will receive it prior to going home.
Cost: $15.00
