Food at Camp

The spirit of camp revolves around our Chadar Ochel (dining hall). Camp eats as a whole community with each cabin eating together family style, adding to the feeling of family and community.

We serve delicious and nutritious meals. All food is ingredient kosher and nut-sensitive. We are able to accommodate a variety of food needs including allergies and sensitivities. Vegetarian, gluten free, and dairy free meals are always available. 

We incorporate and encourage healthy food choices through options such as a protein-rich salad bar, whole wheat bread, and cut fruits and vegetables. Snacks are provided throughout the day, and include fruit, yogurt, cereal bars and cookies. “Tuck” (the camp store) is offered three times a week and includes a ‘healthy-choice’ day offering items like granola bars, pretzels and water.

Friday nights we have a festive Shabbat camp meal, followed by song session and Israeli dancing. We say Hamotzi (blessing over the meal) before we eat and chant Birkat Hamazon or B’rich Rachamana (grace after meals) after we eat.

While our kitchen is not supervised by an kashrut authority,we do operate according to a prescibed set of guidelines. Food is served on separate dishes for meat and dairy, all ingredients are kosher, and all meat and cheese has a hecksher.

We provide a safe environment for campers with food needs with a dedicated staff member to help manage these needs with our campers, staff and kitchen. Campers who require special allergy or health-related diets are easily accommodated. If you have any questions about our summer meal program or your child’s dietary limitations, please contact us.
