Parents-> Getting Ready For Camp-> Special Dietary Considerations
Special Dietary ConsiderationsThe demand for special diets has increased over the years, and we find that we are able to accommodate some special dietary needs. Our kitchens are dedicated to producing nutritious high quality meals from fresh ingredients for our entire community and both space and time limit our ability to adequately provide for multiple special diets.
It is absolutely necessary that a child on a special diet be aware of his/her dietary needs, and cooperative with his/her dietary plan. He or she must be knowledgeable about what foods can and cannot be eaten and willing to check in with our kitchen staff before each meal.
Nut AllergiesOur kitchens are nut aware and we do not use or serve products with hidden nuts or nut oils. However, we do serve peanut butter, granola with nuts, some desserts which include nuts and occasional nut garnishes for some other foods. In these cases, we always provide nut-free options.
Gluten AllergiesOur kitchens are gluten aware and can provide the following gluten-free items: bread, pasta, corn tortillas, pancakes, and waffles. These products are gluten-free but may include dairy and eggs, soy or other ingredients which may not be acceptable for certain gluten based intolerances. We are also able to prepare most meats in a gluten free way. Parents may provide additional foods for their child which can be eaten cold or prepared in a microwave. We would be happy to provide a list of items which have worked well for other campers on gluten-free diets.
Lactose IntoleranceWe provide soy milk and rice milk as an alternative. Some dishes on our menu include cooked cheese.
VegetariansFor each meal which has a meat-based main dish we will provide a vegetarian option.
We do not prepare special vegan meals. Fresh fruits and vegetables are always available.
Please contact us and speak with a director regarding any special dietary needs your child has before enrolling them for camp.
