Meal times are more than just a chance to fill up. It’s a time for the entire camp to be together in our beautiful dining hall. Campers eat with their cabin groups, but get to visit friends from other cabins, while enjoying songs and announcements. It’s a social event that happens 3 times a day.
Meals are served family-style, with platters passed around the table, allowing campers to choose what they want to eat. It’s an opportunity to try new things and enjoy old favourites. Our kitchen staff works hard to prepare meals, serving up a mix of camp classics and treats, along with kid-friendly and nutritious choices. If you have a particular favourite from home bring our chef a sample and she’ll try to recreate it. This has led to some popular menu additions over the years!
“Please know that Camp Walden is a nut-aware camp, and does not serve any food containing peanut products. Read more about what this means and how we maintain camp as a safe space for campers with allergies.”
Our chefs are always preparing new and healthy alternatives to our vegetarian menu. We encourage families to prepare new meals at home before camp starts for campers to try. This allows campers to be more open to different food options, varieties, and have the confidence to try something new at Walden.
For example, feel free to ask us for our Tofu, Stuffed peppers, or stir fry recipes! Cook them with different sauces, quinoa, beans, and other lentils that are common vegetarian options at camp!
* Kosher meat is meat that has been purchased with a Hechsher but please note that it is prepared in our regular kitchen. Every effort is made to keep things separate (i.e. chicken is cooked in an oven on a cookie sheet covered with tin foil or parchment paper) but it would not meet the standard of Kashruth that Kosher restaurants are required to meet.
