Food and Meals

The Glass Lodge (Dining Hall) is where we feed souls and bodies. It is filled with laughter, singing, and great conversations. Campers and staff enjoy three meals a day and an evening snack. We serve healthy, kid-friendly food. There's always a full cereal/oatmeal bar at breakfast and full salad bar at every lunch and dinner, along with side dishes.

Campers who have food allergies or special dietary needs are welcome. Our kitchen staff works hard to ensure all campers’ needs are met. Just give us a call so we can learn more about your camper before arrival. Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options are all available. Food allergies are handled on an individual basis and should be noted on your camper’s health form.
