food allergy policy
There are a wide variety of food allergies and sensitivities that children have. Unfortunately, due to time restraints and the volume of food served each meal at Woodlands, we do not offer special dietary menus.
If you feel your child needs supplemental/replacement food you may send these and deliver them to the camp kitchen the day of check-in between 2:30-4:30 INCLUDING a completed Allergy Form.
Due to the risk of cross contamination and health codes, the kitchen staff cannot cook individual meals. Everything must be pre-made/cooked and pre-packaged in serving size containers. A refrigerator, freezer, dry storage and microwave is available. Please follow these labeling instructions:

a note about severe food allergies
We do have campers who come to camp with severe food allergies, but they must be aware of their allergy and of course, know what they can and can not have. Our kitchen is nut free. We also provide a special Woodlands wristband to campers with rescue medication (epi-pens, inhalers) to alert the staff that medication is available in the event of an emergency. We know the severity of food allergies varies so we trust you, as the parent, to ultimately decide if the camp environment is safe for your child's health. If you feel that it is, we certainly will do what we can to make sure your camper has a safe and unforgettable week. If you have further medical questions, please feel free to email the camp nurse at Julie@woodlandscamp.org.
