Lunch Ideas


A Kosher dairy or pareve lunch must be brought from home.  Lunches can be refrigerated. On trip days, send food that does not need to be refrigerated and send it in disposable bags. 

We also offer, through Cafe Fino, a hot lunch that you may purchase before camp.  We deliver the food to your child on these days (Monday's and Thursday).  This is a kosher lunch and it allows you to have a couple days a week where you will not have to make a lunch for your child.  Forms will be coming out soon.

Snacks are provided once a day.  Water coolers are brought with us on field trips. 

Here are some suggestions for lunches:
