What makes a camper happy? After the rigors of a day on the obstacle course or canoeing on the lake, a good night’s sleep is essential to an enjoyable stay at summer camp.
While campers blissfully slumber without regard to the finer points of summer camp bunk beds, camp staff will appreciate equipment made specifically to withstand the rough and tumble treatment of even the liveliest and most robust campers. Not only do these beds need to last many summers, they also must make use of valuable space.
Summer Camp Bunk Beds
Today’s bunk beds for camps include technological advancements such as integrated frames and durable finish options. An array of styles, shapes, and sizes are also available to accommodate different body sizes and various bunkhouse configurations. Detachable bunk beds and even triple-stacked beds offer yet more possible arrangements for the summer camp house.
While durability, comfort, and design should be considered when choosing summer camp bunks, keeping the equipment, especially mattresses, pest-free is essential. ESS Universal bunk beds are constructed with tubes welded on all four sides, offering nowhere for pests to enter.
Specifically engineered for high-traffic, high-use situations, ESS bunks boasts a high weight rating of 500 pounds to adequately support your typical summer camper, even with a friend or two hopping on for ghost stories. What about constant squeaking in a house full of beds? ESS beds feature heavy mesh instead of springs, and a secure connection to the platform keeps the headboard and foot board quiet as well. The bunks’ ladders also reach all the way to the floor, allowing them to bear more weight, and the tubular metal frames are much stronger than other frames and will withstand ubiquitous summer camp capers and jinks.
Best Value in Summer Camp Bunks
When considering long-term value rather than the immediate savings of cheaper equipment, camp owners will appreciate metal bunks over army cots or wooden beds.
The latter, for example, can splinter and be difficult to set up and are simply not as durable as their metal counterparts. Camp owners can count on many years of happy campers’ summers nights, making ESS bunk beds a wise, cost-effective alternative. ESS’s multi-year structural warranty further strengthens it as a savvy economic choice.
Equally important as the bunk structure itself is the mattress. When exhausted campers sink into their semi-firm, high-density foam mattresses they probably won’t be thinking about the fact that their beds are specifically engineered to resist bed bugs. They will be blissfully unconcerned that the mattress is breathable, hypoallergenic, and machine washable; but they may notice the soft feel of the satin-like cover and how quiet it is even when tossing and turning to find the right position.
ESS’ mattresses are water-resistant, too, an especially important feature for camps hosting water-based activities or those located in humid summer locations.
Choosing the right camp bunk beds is not only a smart economic decision for camp owners; it also lets them sleep peacefully knowing they are providing safe, comfortable, quiet, and pest-free bunks for their guests.
