With summer right around the corner, now is the perfect time to refurnish your camp’s cabins. No matter what kind of summer camp you run, the campers will need a comfortable place to sleep.
We know it can be hard to make any space comfortable when ten or more people are trying to sleep at the same time. But the right mattresses can make the difference between a good night of sleep for everybody and ten grumpy campers in the morning.
At ESS Universal, we’ve got the perfect mattresses that your campers will love just as much as you will. Read on to learn about five of the best camp mattress features that come standard with every ESS Universal mattress.
Comfortable High-Density Foam
Many other camp mattresses use a cheap filling that doesn’t offer any ergonomic support. They immediately give under the weight of a human, and you’re essentially sleeping on the bed frame.
But all of our mattresses have a four-inch high-density foam core for supreme comfort. The high-quality foam contours to the user’s body, providing a healthy balance of comfort and support. The semi-firm foam is very breathable, keeping users cool throughout the night.
The foam is also lightweight, weighing less than two pounds per cubic foot. This makes it easy to move the mattress around or lift it above your head to place it on top-level bunks.
Waterproof and Easy to Clean
The ESS Universal camp mattress features a sleek, non-absorbent polyurethane cover with an airtight seal, making it totally waterproof.
This is especially useful in summer camps where all sorts of accidents happen — an inevitable pitfall of running a summer camp. But our mattresses ensure that no water, urine, or any other liquid ever soaks through to the foam center.
This also prolongs the lifespan of the mattresses since you don’t have to worry about water damage or mold and mildew taking hold from within. And when laundry day comes, the satiny-soft mattress covers can easily be removed and tossed in the washing machine and washed normally.
Bed Bug Resistant
A bed bug infestation is a worst-case scenario for most camp owners. Once the little critters take hold in one cabin, they spread like wildfire throughout the entire camp. But the risk is always there, especially at outdoor summer camps. So it’s important to take as many preventative measures as possible.
Our mattresses are completely bug-resistant, thanks to the polyurethane mattress cover. The plastic material ensures that no bed bugs can cling on while the airtight seal prevents any bugs from burrowing inside the foam core. This makes it easier to prevent infestations and ensure any cases of bed bugs are isolated incidents.
Stays Quiet All Night Long
For many first-time campers, it is also their first time sleeping away from home. This often results in at least a few nights of restless sleeping.
ESS Universal camp mattresses are designed to stay quiet no matter how much tossing the user does. There’s no squeaking or creaking when campers get on and off the bed or change sleeping positions. This means restless campers won’t keep everyone else up all night.
With so many campers visiting your camp, you have to keep allergies in mind. Since our camp mattress features a polyurethane cover, you don’t have to worry about triggering any latex or rubber allergies. You’ll never be left scrambling to find last-minute accommodations because someone had an allergic reaction to their bedding.
