I'm so lonely!

Gladys was a recurring character on Bunk'd. She was the proprietor of Camp Kikiwaka and was even scarier than the legendary creature rumored to inhabit the area. She left town for good after taking all the insurance money with her that was to be used to rebuild the cabins.
She was portrayed by Mary Scheer.


She is mean, bitter, careless, and scary, even scarier than the legendary creature that's rumored to haunt the grounds, as described by the kids at Camp Kikiwaka. She is always seen complaining about her past failed relationships and how no one will ever love her but is always extremely desperate to find or get a man. However, they seemingly reject her because of her desperation while some use her for personal gain. The reason why Gladys is so mean and bitter is that she despises Christina and her children, claiming that Christina "stole" Morgan from her, to which also why she has no friends. She also seems to be very careless for the campers well-being, the campers themselves, or her job. Despite this, Gladys also is shown to be very gullible to the point of falling for the "Nigerian Prince" scam, as she believed that an actual Nigerian prince would propose and marry her.

Physical Appearance

She is a tall middle-aged woman, with brown hair and blue eyes. She is usually seen wearing a bonnet and a red shirt with khaki shorts. She once dressed up similar to the Kikiwaka, though that was a one-time thing. She also hasn't shaved herself for some amount of time.

Welcome to Camp Kikiwaka

Geez! You don't shave your legs for one month, and suddenly you're a "sir."
With every bone in my body, including my artificial hip. I loved your father, but your mom stole him from me. Plus the title of "Best Counselor," and any chance I ever had at having a happy life!
We pay homage to Kikiwaka, the giant, ravenous demon beast who roams these woods!
With the blessing of Kikiwaka, our summer revels commence! Remember to pick up your trash.
Attention, campers! Time for the obstacle course. The winning cabin gets to have a pizza party, while I just continue the obstacle course that is my life.
Attention, campers! I have been informed that there was a Kikiwaka close encounter last night.
I haven't had a close encounter since last July 4th at the Moose Lodge. I'm so lonely!
And for the last ding dang time, it is one thing to pee in the lake, but it is completely unacceptable to leave a number two in a canoe!
So instead, we'll be racing inner tubes today. Last person to the lake has to clean the canoe!
Ha! Dopey kids. They'll believe anything.
