What is Bunk1?
Camp Fire Minnesota uses Bunk1 so you can send letters to your camper through Bunk Notes (overnight camps only; not available on Northwoods trips).
An invitation code to join Bunk1 will be included in your “Get Ready for Camp” email – sent two weeks before your week of camp.
This year, photos will be shared through Google Photos. A link will be included in your “Get Ready for Camp” email.

Account Set-up: where is my invitation code?
The Invitation Code will be in your “get ready for camp” email sent two weeks before camp.
If you do not receive this, please email or call and we’ll share the code.
Account Set-up: does Bunk1 cost money?
- There is a fee to send Bunk Notes. There are three bundles available, ranging from $3.95-$14.95.
* Bunk Notes are not available for day campers
Bunk Notes: how do I send a letter to my camper?
Only available for overnight campers.
Hearing from family throughout the week is a way to share updates and give your sleep-over camper comfort during their week at camp.
Submit your Bunk Note by 10am CST, and it will be delivered to your camper in the afternoon.
You can add photos, fun borders and games to your Bunk Note for an additional fee, but please note: Bunk Notes are printed in black and white only and campers will not be able to respond back.
Bunk Notes: can any camper get a Bunk Note?
Bunk Notes are available to Overnight Campers.
They are not available for Day Camps, Day Camp Assistant, or Northwoods Adventure Trips.
Bunk Notes: how does my camper respond to me?
At this time, campers are only able to send letters home the old-fashioned way… paper, envelope, and stamp. Campers can bring their letter to the office and it will go out in the next day’s mail. Please pack these supplies with your camper when arriving to camp.
If your camper is needing to talk to their family due to homesickness or other urgent matters, our staff will coordinate a call. In most cases we will try to redirect the camper from calling home when homesick, as a call often makes kids more homesick. Our goal is to help campers grow their independence and our staff have many methods to combat homesickness, which will be tried before a call home.
Is there a Mobile App?
There sure is! Search for “Bunk1” in App Store or Google Pay to download the free app.
