Leaders of eight of the world's largest economies are meeting at Camp David this evening for the G-8 Summit, marking the biggest gathering of heads of state at the president's country retreat in history.
The rustic estate in Maryland's Catoctin Mountains, however, presents something of a logistical challenge for the White House as it seeks to accommodate all of the leaders and their staffs.
Before your mind wanders to those summer camp memories of bunk bed-filled cabins, the Obama administration assures there are "adequate facilities" for each delegation. But who sleeps where? And how were the arrangements decided?
"The allocation system, of course, is classified," National Security Advisor Tom Donilon jokingly told reporters Thursday.
"The summit is intended to be small and intimate, and the President made a conscious decision to host the G8 meeting at Camp David for this reason. Each head of state or government will have his or her own cabin and they'll have the opportunity, obviously, to meet informally on the margins of the meetings and to take full advantage of the grounds at Camp David," he said.
President Obama was originally slated to host the summit in his hometown of Chicago, but announced in March that he was moving the meetings to Camp David.

I’ll bet that place still stinks to high heaven. Carter and Clinton practically had Arafart living up there.
"Did somebody say 'Who sleeps where?' "
"I'll be glad to help you solve that problem."
Bathouse Barry hates Camp David by all accounts. Now he’s hiding out there so there are no G-8 riots by Obama voters on TV this weekend. What a coward.
