Safety Tip for Bunk Beds at Camp

Here’s a safety tip for parents who are worried about their child sleeping on the top bunk at camp.  Some kids have bunk beds at home so its no problem, but there are others who have never been on a top bunk before.  If you are concerned about your child rolling off the top bunk, we’ve got a nifty solution that can help.

When making the bed, use a fitted sheet with a pool noodle along the edge of the bed.  See the picture below for an example.  When the sheet is in place, the pool noodle is held snugly, creating a bumper for your kiddo in the night.  There are no guarantees, but hopefully it can help give the parent and the child a bit of comfort about being on the top bunk.
