Lunches, Before, and After Care

Options for Lunch

Campers have the option to bring a lunch or to purchase catered lunches (Plus Lunch program). When bringing lunch, please refrain from shellfish, pork, and nuts. Water is provided daily. Campers can choose to bring their own lunch or pre-order purchase through the registration software. Due to the nature of the program, lunch is not available for Teen Camp.

Through our Plus Lunch program, we will provide your camper with a Kosher, nut-free lunch each day. This will include a main entree, vegetable/fruit, and dessert each day. The Plus Lunch program can be added any time up until one week in advance.
