All of our campers eat lunch at camp. The 3- to 4-year-olds eat in their classrooms, while the 5- to 6-year-olds generally eat in Riverside Park. Campers are encouraged to bring their lunch in an insulated bag with an ice pack, as lunches are not refrigerated and cannot be warmed. We ask that all lunches brought from home be meat- and nut-free.
All campers receive a dairy/pareve snack and beverage as part of their camp day. Food served and/or prepared at the JCC is kosher and nut-free.
We recently launched a new initiative focusing on healthy eating, and have worked a number of new foods into our campers' repertoires, adding more nutritious options to our old favorites. A snack specialist works at Day Camp @ the JCC, making fresh, healthy snacks for our campers, including homemade granola bars, kale chips, pita chips and fresh hummus, banana bread, and so much more.
