Lunch Program

Lunch Program



In order to help keep our tuition price the affordable, we have opted to cut our lunch and snack program. While we will always have water available all day to drink, have bread and PB&J for emergencies, and offer a late afternoon snack for our extended days, we will not be serving any lunches or snacks on a regular basis.

All campers must bring a dairy or pareve lunch with at least two healthy snacks. Campers will have the opportunity to eat their snack in the morning and afternoon. Please limit the "junk" food, as the days are hot and long. Healthy and nutritious food will keep your camper going strong all day. While we will always have water available, please send a water bottle in their lunches daily. Lunches will not be refrigerated; however lunches will be kept inside, aside from outdoor trip days.

We eat lunch at 11:30 am except for some trip days when lunch will be at 12:00 pm. When lunch is at 12:00 pm we will offer the campers a chance to eat a morning snack they have provided. Although we are not providing food, please clearly indicate, on the camp registration form, if your child is allergic to specific foods or has special food requirements. This way we can help keep our camp healthy and happy.

Water will be available daily.
