What criteria are used to decide which children go into which chalets?

We separate children into cabins depending on their gender, their age and, of course, we try to keep groups together of friends or siblings who don’t differ a lot in age. We try to be quite strict where age is concerned as our extensive experience has shown that children have specific interests at each age. If certain children wish to lodge together in the same chalet, they have to mention this to the counselor in charge at the time of their arrival. You don’t have to let the camp office know ahead of time.
