Each group eats a picnic lunch together every day
Our Lunch periods are hour-long blocks that take up the middle portion of the day between the morning activities and the afternoon ones. Lunch is a time for the campers to take a break from all the movement and activity of the morning so that they can gain the energy they need for the rest of the afternoon. Each group has a designated tree that indicates where each group eats lunch. While each group has its own area by its tree, the groups eat together in larger spaces based on their section; there are three different lunch areas for the Fox, Bear, and Eagle sections. After the group is finished eating lunch, the campers can engage in some free play in the lunch areas supervised by the counselors. This period provides time for campers to engage with campers in their own groups and campers in other groups in a number of various activities, often up to the interest and imagination of the campers themselves. Lunch is an important time that allows for the combination of refueling and free time for the campers.
*Please note that we do not allow campers to bring peanuts, tree nuts, and nut products, and the sharing of food among campers is also not allowed. Please see Food Policy under Parent Info for more details.
Unfortunately, our third-party lunch service provider was not able to run in 2021 due to Covid. We are hopeful that they will be back in 2022, but for now, all campers must bring a packed lunch each day.
