Meals

Each day, your camper will receive a hearty breakfast, lunch, dinner, and yummy snacks. Our menu is designed to meet the nutritional needs of growing, active campers. We also can accommodate dietary restrictions - just be sure to let us know!

Fun Fact: Meals are an important part of camp: it is a time for a cabin to sit down together and share stories with one another. All of our meals are done “family-style”, where campers eat with their cabins for the entire meal. Campers help with setting and clearing their table, and bringing food back and forth from the good food window.

At the end of every meal we have a set of announcements, which help prepare campers for the rest of their day. More often than not, skits, songs and interesting characters will make appearances during the announcements as well.

Typical menu options include: 

Breakfast: cold cereal, bagels, muffins, pancakes, banana bread, oatmeal, etc. 
Lunch: grilled cheese, soup, buffalo chicken wraps, pierogies, hot dogs, chicken burgers, salads, etc. 
Dinner: lasagna, chicken parmesan, burgers, stir-fry, pizza, tacos, etc.
