Campers are welcome to bring their own lunch that is nut free. Refrigeration is provided. Lunches should be packed in a soft lunch bag and clearly labeled with the camper’s name.
You also have the option to purchase a kid-friendly lunch provided by the camp. If you would like to buy lunch for your child, there will be a form to do so, and you will need to purchase lunch by the week. Each day there is a Hot & Cold (nut-free) lunch option prepared and packaged in our NEW commercial kitchen right on the premises. Our kitchen is run by professionals that work with children during the school year. In addition to the hot and cold options that are on the menu each day, the kitchen staff tries to accommodate all major allergens with a prior weeks notice. Gluten and dairy free options are available daily. Lunch Menu (available in the spring)

All campers, whether they bring or buy a lunch, will be provided with water. Drinking water throughout the day is encouraged by all of our staff. Campers can bring/pack a drink in their lunch bag which is refrigerated.FOOD ALLERGIES
Many parents choose Tenacre specifically because of the precautions we take to protect children with allergies. We are an allergy aware camp, and many of our campers have food allergies, and life-threatening allergies to peanuts/treenuts. If a camper has an EpiPen for his/her food allergy, the camper's lunch will be kept in the Directors' refrigerator. Campers are not allowed to share food.
The camp provides a peanut/nut free snack for all campers. The snacks below are served on a rotating basis throughout the summer.
- Rold Gold Pretzels
- Oatmeal Bar with Blueberries or Strawberries
- Corn Bread
- Cheese Sticks
- Annie’s Bunny Grahams
- Ritz and Saltine Crackers
