MANITOU’S ONLINE MAIL SYSTEM
Bunk Notes & Bunk Replies
Stay in touch with your camper this summer with Bunk Notes & Bunk Replies. Please remember, nothing compares to a handwritten letter in an envelope delivered by Canada Post. We realize this is not easily available to all parents, especially families outside Canada. Bunk1 allows you to send messages and receive handwritten responses direct to your online account or mobile app.
SEND YOUR CAMPER BUNK NOTES
Bunk notes can take up to 2 days to be delivered to your child as all mail is sorted in camp and delivered with traditional mail to cabins. Please note that while it is important to send mail to your child, it is never a good idea to send too much mail as it can make your child reliant on daily communication. 2-3 times per week is a great balance at camp.
RECEIVE A BUNK REPLY
We have already set up your account with access to Bunk Reply Stationery on letter writing days. 2 times each week, we will provide your camper with the stationery to write home – free of charge to you. You will receive an email notification when you have received a Bunk Reply.
ACCESS YOUR BUNK1 ACCOUNT!
We have already set you up with an account for you to use if you wish. This is not a mandatory system, only additional to traditional mail. If you would like to send Bunk Note messages to your child, follow the instructions below:
Go to www.bunk1.com.
If you need to reset your password at any point, simply click Need to reset your password? and we will email you a link to create a new password.
You will be prompted to select a bundle for access to the Parent Portal. Bundles include credits to send Bunk Notes. You can also use credits to receive Bunk Replies but keep in mind that you receive 2 free replies each week.
IMPORTANT MESSAGE ON MAIL DELIVERY AT CAMP MANITOU
Bunk Notes take up to 2 days to be delivered to your child. Example – you send a letter to your child through Bunk1 on Tuesday. We receive the letter on Wednesday. Mail takes 1 day to sort in camp and will be delivered to your child on Thursday. Please keep this in mind as sometimes you may get a Bunk Reply from your child that will not be a response to a letter you have written days ago based on timing. Letter writing typically happens right after lunch BEFORE mail delivery.
DOWNLOAD THE BUNK1 MOBILE APP
This summer, you will have access to send Bunk Notes and view your Bunk Replies from the Bunk1 mobile app. You will be sent push notifications whenever you receive a reply. All available today on the Bunk1 mobile app.
