Lunch and Snack
Campers enjoy a delicious and nutritious lunch catered by Soosh!!
In addition to the main dish, we offer plain pasta, whole grain bread, soy butter and jelly, fresh fruit, and a salad bar. Menus are posted online prior to each Camp season and are subject to change due to availability or freshness. Healthy morning and afternoon snacks, and an ice pop at the end of the day are also provided. Water coolers are placed at central locations around the campsite for campers to refill their water bottles. All lunches and snacks are nut-free.
Please let us know if your child has food allergies and we will work with you to accommodate their needs.
