Food & Nutrition

One of the benefits of being one of America’s oldest private boys camp is that you have lots of years of experience to learn from – and lots of menus!

Here’s the low-down on food at Camp Awosting:

  • The majority of meals are served family style, with staff at every table.
  • We have weekly BBQs and Buffet dinners
  • We support and can accommodate ALL food allergies and special diets. We just need your help to understand how best to take care of your son.
  • We have campers each year with dairy, nut, wheat, soy and egg allergies. Gluten free foods are also available, as well as vegetarian options.
  • Picky eaters love camp with our main meal alternatives like our salad bar and pasta station.
  • We proudly serve products from our local organic dairy – Arethusa Farm
  • Every day, we have fresh fruit available at ALL times.
  • We offer a healthy snack every afternoon during Canteen, and occasionally a tasty treat!

At breakfast we offer a hot main meal, like pancakes, eggs, and french toast. Additionally, each day we offer cereal, a bagel station and a breakfast with all the fruit and yoghurt you could possibly imagine!

At lunch we offer a nutritious and substantial main meal for every camper. A main meal might be fresh chicken sandwiches, turkey wraps with all the fixings, chicken fingers and veggies, or home-made macaroni and cheese. At every lunch we offer soup and a salad bar full of fresh and locally-sourced veggies, meats, toppings, and extras. Sandwiches are always available as well!

At dinner we always offer a pasta bar and full salad bar, as well as a main course, like stir fry, chicken cordon bleu, or roast turkey. All this talk of food is making us hungry!
