Cabin Requests

Being in a cabin with other campers is one of the BEST parts of camp. We want your daughter to love her cabin, her cabinmates, and her counselor, and we work hard to make each cabin the perfect balance of campers and personalities.

We encourage campers to attend without concern for cabin requests, but we will make every effort to place your daughter with ONE special requested friend, IF that friend also requests her. You may enter up to 2 requests for us to consider (such as a hometown friend and a camp friend, a hometown friend and your Penpal, or even 2 camp friends).

Please understand that clear communication with your requested friend is very important. If you do not think it best to be with a camper who is requesting your daughter, be honest with the other parents involved. Such difficult conversations are easier before camp. We cannot keep cabin requests confidential.

We place girls in the cabin with other campers in their same grade. If space requires us to have a mixed cabin (one with two grades in it) we will consider double requests from girls who are one grade apart only. This means that one of the campers will be with a grade older or younger than her grade.

If your girls are twins, please let us know if they want to be in the same cabin.

Returning Campers… Please do not assume that we know your request already!

If you have questions about cabin requests, please contact:

  • Junior Camp
    Katie Miller Grant
  • June and Main Camps
    Laura Hollowell
  • August Camp
    Cat Elbaum

If you have a cabin request, fill out the Cabin Request Form (available online in the spring) in your Greystone Account or through the Campanion app. It is fine to not request anyone…meeting new people is the best part of camp!

Cabin assignments are revealed on Opening Day (not before).

Bunk Assignments

Assigning bunks takes the stress out of Opening Day! We will assign bunks (top or bottom bunk) for ALL campers. Your daughter will love finding her bunk assignment when she arrives in her cabin on Opening Day. We cannot accommodate bunk requests, and your daughter will not be able to switch bunks.
