Health & Nutrition

Every year, our campers rate Chef Richard’s food as outstanding. Some say it’s even the highlight of camp! We start off the day with a hot breakfast, and kids can grab a snack (usually fruit) at any time. Lunch is served buffet-style, and campers are free to sit with anyone they choose. A filling and delicious dinner, served family-style, greets everyone in the evening. Several times each session, we all gather at the waterfront for a cookout.

We make everything from scratch, and we source most of our food locally from farmers’ markets and nearby farms. Our milk even comes from a local creamery. Our food is healthy but kid-friendly, and campers always have several choices—even the pickiest eaters love our food! We offer cooking and baking classes as part of the program, and we maintain a Grade A health rating.

This was Connor’s first time at camp (and away from me). He had a great time and can’t stop talking about the food. He is a picky eater, so it worried me that he wouldn’t eat, but he couldn’t stop talking about the food. He loved it! – Susan Brodnax, Hendersonville, NC

We can easily accommodate most allergies. Chef Richard will meet with you and your camper on Opening Day to discuss your child’s dietary needs. Gluten- and nut-free foods have a separate prep and serving station. We can accommodate:

  • Vegetarians
  • Gluten-free
  • Dairy-free
  • Soy-free
  • Nut-free

However, we regret that we are unable to accommodate kosher or vegan diets.
