At breakfast we offer a hot main meal, like pancakes, eggs, or french toast. Daily we offer hot and cold cereal, a yogurt, granola and fruit bar, as well as a bagel bar which includes bagels, toast, and muffins.

At lunch we offer a nutritious and substantial main meal for every camper. A main meal might be fresh chicken sandwiches , turkey wraps with all the fixings, chicken fingers and veggies, or home-made macaroni and cheese. At every lunch we also offer soup and a salad bar full of fresh and locally-sourced veggies, meats, toppings, and extras. Sandwiches are always available as well. We’re kind of famous for our Grilled Cheeses, so don’t be surprised if your daughter comes home asking you to make her one!

At dinner we always offer a pasta bar and full salad bar, as well as a main course, like stir fry, chicken cordon bleu, our famous lasagna or roast turkey.
