Parents are responsible for packing a lunch and snack each day for each child enrolled in the camp. For the safety of campers and staff with life-threatening allergies, foods containing any type of peanut/nut and peanut/nut by-products, are not permitted at camp. To reduce litter, we strongly encourage the use of litter-free packaging such as reusable plastic containers for your child’s lunch and snacks.

Although every effort is made to ensure belongings are properly collected throughout the day, kids often will lose or forget something at camp. Please ensure all your child’s belongings are properly labeled with his/her first & last name. All items left behind at camp are displayed daily for campers to look through. Parents are also welcome to search through the lost & found items by visiting the camp during pick up at the end of the day.
