Receiving Bunk Replies
You must provide your camper with Bunk Reply Stationery to receive Bunk Replies. There are two options:
1. Purchase & print Bunk Reply Stationery when you set up (or renew) your account
2. Attach Bunk Reply Stationery when you send Bunk Notes to your camper
Once your camper receives the stationery, it is up to him/her to write the letter and hand it in to the camp.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I have to pay a registration fee?
This fee goes to pay for the photographer, server space & bandwidth, website security (required by law), customer support, and helps us cover the cost of paper, ink, and labor. This frees us to do what we do best – be with your kids! Without this fee we would not be able to offer this service. The registration fee is $5.
How do I view pictures?
Follow the instructions above except, after registering, simply sign in and click on the Photo Gallery button. Photos are kept in folders found on the left side of the page below the words “Image Folders”. Click on any folder to see the pictures within that folder. You can even purchase prints or other photo gifts (e.g., t-shirts, mugs) of your favorite pictures!
How do I send a Bunk Note (one-way email) to my camper?
Follow the instructions above except, after registering, simply sign in and click on the Bunk Notes button. Enter your camper’s name, select the correct cabin, type your message, and hit the “Send” button.
Can other relatives use these services?
Certainly. Once you have set up your account, you will be able to invite other people to access these services.
Why do I have to pay to send Bunk Notes (one-way email)?
Each morning, the Bunk Notes system bundles and sorts the messages for us to print out and distribute to campers. It also protects us from computer viruses and allows us to easily manage these emails. Your payment helps us cover the cost of the system, paper, ink, and labor and, more importantly, frees us to do what we do best – be with your kids! Bunk Note credits cost $1 each and are purchased in packs of various sizes.
What do I do if I lost my username and password?
You can get it online by going to www.Bunk1.com and clicking on the link "Lost Your Password?" (to the left of the page below the sign in button). You will receive an email with your username and password within a few minutes.
How much does it cost to use Bunk Replies?
It costs a total of 2 credits for you to send Bunk Reply Stationery to your camper and receive a Bunk Reply in return. Alternatively, you can pay a flat fee to pre-print an unlimited amount of Bunk Reply Stationery (before camp starts).
When will I get a Reply from my camper?
You will only receive a Reply from your child once he/she writes the note, turns it in to the camp office, and it is faxed into the system. Some campers will not write a response immediately and some may not write at all. Please be patient.
Why do I have to pay for Bunk Replies?
Your payment helps us cover technology costs, paper, ink, and labor and, more importantly, frees us to do what we do best – be with your kids!
