Bunk Nights are planned and ran by the counselors of each bunk for the campers of said bunk. One of the most important aspects of bunk nights are that the campers have an opportunity to bond with their closest friends in a unique way. Bunk nights focus on getting the campers to do things they normally can’t during the day at CSL as a bunk.
Village nights are programs for all campers and staff in a village. Typically, these activities are planned by a committee of staff within the village, in an effort to bring these campers closer to one another and create a more cohesive village unit. Village nights are a great opportunity for the older campers in a village to take on leadership opportunities and for the younger campers to learn and play with older campers in a low-stakes environment.
PUPs (Program Unit Programs) are most easily explained as an activity for a combination of villages. The villages can be combined by age groups (older/younger) or genders (big sibling/little sibling). PUPs are unique activities for each session.
ACPs (All Camp Program) involve every camper and staff member in camp. ACP’s often involve mixing campers from various genders and age groups. One of the main goals of ACP’s is to have campers interact with other campers from different bunks and villages. ACPs are unique to each session.
