The camp community gathers in our Chadar Ochel (dining hall) for three meals a day. As a community Camp, we serve delicious and nutritious meals. All food is kosher (non-supervised). We incorporate and encourage healthy food choices through options such as a protein-rich salad bar, whole wheat bread and cut fruits and vegetables.
To ensure complete safety and remain all-inclusive, our facility is peanut and tree-nut aware. Other dietary needs can often be accommodated, including vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, egg free, lactose free and sugar free. To ensure children have enough ‘fuel to burn’ we also serve snacks during the day and at night-time which can include fruit, yogurt, cereal bars and cookies. “Canteen” (the camp store) is offered three times a week and includes ‘healthy-choice’ items like granola bars, pretzels and water.
Meals are served family-style. Platters are passed around the table allowing campers to choose what they want to eat. It’s an opportunity to try new things and enjoy old favourites. Our kitchen staff work hard to prepare healthy and balanced meals that fuel our campers and staff for their active camp day. We aspire to make camp food that campers are familiar with and so our menu is thoughtfully created to include a variety of meals and lots of choices to ensure everyone can find something they love to eat.
Menu items are selected to provide nutritional meals that appeal to campers. When feeding many people, we understand that it is important to provide choices. Most special dietary needs and allergies can be accommodated with our regular daily meal offerings.
At every lunch and dinner, we offer a salad bar. Our centre table buffet also has extra choices which help to meet the needs of anyone on a special or particular diet and even those children who may be “picky” eaters. Fresh fruits, salads and cut vegetables are readily available.
Milk is served at breakfast while ice cold water is served at lunches and dinner.
In addition to breakfast, lunch and dinner, we provide healthy snacks (fruit, cheese, veggie platters, energy bars, muffins) throughout the day. A healthy snack is also available each evening and may also include cookies, pastries, or a frozen treat.
