Dietary Needs/Concerns:
Due to the variety/varying degrees of food allergies and dietary preferences our kitchen in not able to accommodate everyone. If your camper requires a special diet we ask that you supplement our menu with easy-prep food that is knowingly safe for them to eat. We have found that sending food items in a Rubbermaid container labeled with their name works best. We have a microwave and a small amount of refrigerator space available for them to use.
