Food & Nutrition
Something For Everyone
We serve three healthy kosher meals each day, and provide snacks if campers need a little nosh in between meals. Meals are served buffet style, except for Shabbat and special occasions, which we do family style. We have vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options at every meal. Campers are always able to help themselves at the salad bar, and fresh veggies and fruit are always on the menu. We sing blessings of gratitude before and after every nosh!
Camp Solomon Schechter is a kosher facility. We serve both milchig (dairy) and fleishig (meat) meals; vegetarian, and additional specialty diet options are always available.
Please do NOT send ANY food to camp with your child.
In addition to concerns regarding the integrity of our kosher facility, food in cabins leads to animals and pests, and theft and jealousy among children. In addition, many campers have life-threatening allergies to food products. Cabins must be kept safe for ALL campers. We serve three wholesome, nutritious meals every day, as well as snacks and canteen. Your child does NOT need to bring money for the canteen. It is included!!
Food packages sent to camp will be confiscated.
Our chef has many years of experience serving healthy and nutritious food. We have healthy snacks in the dining hall for anyone who is hungry between meals. Your child’s health is important to us. We can accommodate vegan, vegetarian, lactose intolerant, and gluten free meals. If your child has some special dietary restrictions we will do our best to accommodate your concerns. Please contact the Assistant Director of Camper Care and Inclusion and see how we can best attend to your child’s needs.
Camp Solomon Schechter is a nut-free facility. We carefully monitor and work diligently to ensure nut products do not enter Camp. For this and other reasons, please do not send or bring food to Camp.
If your child has food allergies, please provide a sample menu and list of acceptable products. If your child is coming to Camp with a life-threatening allergy, we require that he/she/they bring 3 epi-pens: One for the child to keep, one for your child’s counselor, and one for the health center. It is imperative that you provide us with complete information for keeping your child safe.
Each day campers have the opportunity to use their Schechter Shekels at Canteen. At canteen they’re able to use their shekels to “buy” a piece of candy or two, a bag of chips, or an otter pop!
