– camp kitchen –
We offer a wide variety of food for every age group, and our guests and campers have raved about how good it tastes! Our camp kitchen and cooks can work with campers who have dietary needs*if the camper will need to be restricted from any foods while at camp, please contact the Food Service Director before the camper session to confirm dietary needs and receive a list of available food substitutions.
*A $25 surcharge will be assessed to meet special dietary requirements, not including peanut and/or nut allergies.
I loved the amazing nurses I worked with. I loved being able to show Gods love to campers when they were hurting. Sometimes it was just giving an otter-pop to a camper with an upset tummy, cleaning out a scraped knee, or even sitting and coloring with them while they where homesick.
My son is one of the pickiest eaters I know. Truthfully I was afraid that I was going to get a call that he wasn’t eating & that I had to pick him up because he was on a hunger strike. Instead, he came home with several new favorite foods that I could never get him to try before. I am so thankful!!!! You will not regret sending your child for this amazing week of fun, friends & adventure!
My 10 year old daughter went this summer and just came home. She was a SUPER picky eater and she tried so many new foods I am so proud of her. She wants to go again next summer multiple times.
