The Camp Office is all excited for Halloween! As is our tradition, we want to remind our friends that many of the trick-or-treaters coming to your door will have serious food allergies. Starting a few years ago the Food Allergy & Research Education Foundation made it really easy to identify which homes were offering safe alternatives for people allergic to peanuts, tree nuts, dairy, gluten, or other ingredients. By posting a teal pumpkin on your front door you are letting every parent and child know that your home is offering something that they can safely enjoy.
Our summer camp in NH is known for many things, and thankfully, one of them is for being a safe summer home for campers with food allergies and sensitivities. For more than 15 years we have proudly been peanut free and tree nut free, and have served safe meals for children who need gluten free, dairy free, egg free, soy free or even garlic free meals.
Our chefs work really hard to create meals that our campers and counselors will love. As you can imagine, we have many different types of eaters, including carnivores, vegetarians, kids who prefer sandwiches, those who need to eat gluten free, egg free or dairy free, those who live on pasta, and of course, our picky kids who really prefer to only eat chicken fingers whenever possible. Thankfully, our team of 5 talented chefs (and one amazing baker) find ways to make delicious camp food for everyone, and our campers and counselors tell us that they love our meals!
