Whether you own and operate summer camps for kids or you host grown-up getaways reminiscent of childhood camp experiences, you want to make sure you create an atmosphere conducive to fun, and this means not only offering ample activities, but also ensuring a safe and comfortable environment. You’ll want to start with the bunk beds and mattresses you choose to outfit your cabins with, and industrial strength bunks and foam mattresses from ESS Universal definitely fit the bill.
How can you tell that you’re getting the highest quality and the best features when you choose foam summer camp mattresses? Here are a few of the features that make these mattresses the best option for your cabins.
Summer camps are often situated in idyllic lake or river settings so campers can enjoy a beautiful view and make the most of nature with activities like swimming, canoeing, and so on. Unfortunately, this can make for somewhat damp conditions. Considering rustic cabins are often kept cool with nature’s air conditioning (i.e. open windows), it’s normal for issues like moisture and mold to infiltrate standard mattresses.
This is why waterproof foam mattresses are ideal for camp settings. The breathable polyurethane materials are designed to resist moisture, stay dry, and prevent issues like mold and mildew common to damp environments. You probably don’t want to test them with a dunk in the lake, but they hold up admirably in humid weather, creating safe and comfortable sleeping conditions for campers all summer long and year after year.
Comfortable, Durable Materials
Foam mattresses are built to last with resilient materials that will stand up to the demands of a busy summer camp and a revolving door of campers. You might think this means you’ll end up with hard, uncomfortable products, but just the opposite is true.
Made from high-density foam, these semi-firm mattresses are designed to mold to the body of the person using them, which means they provide the greatest possible comfort and deliver a good nights’ rest every time. With soft, satin mattress covers in place, campers won’t notice the slightest noise, even if they’re light sleepers that toss and turn all night.
In addition, breathable and hypoallergenic materials keep campers cool and reduce the effects of indoor allergens. In short, foam mattresses encased in suitable covers are gong to provide the greatest comfort and safety for campers, as well as longevity that ensures significant use value and cost savings over time.
Bed Bug Resistance
With so many campers coming and going, traveling in from all over the country or even the world, pest infestations are a natural concern, and bed bugs can be a particular nuisance. Not only are they harmful to campers, but they’re also incredibly difficult to get rid of.
The mattresses and covers you choose make a difference, and you want product that are going to keep bed bugs at bay. The right summer camp mattresses are designed to resist unwanted guests, including pests like bed bugs.
