Do you provide lunch and snacks?

 

Campers bring their own lunch or purchase meals from Smart Lunches. Please note that refrigeration and heating are not available; please use an ice pack if necessary. We also provide lunch each Friday during the Creative Arts and Sports Camp i.e pizza, burgers, and/or hot dogs. These lunch options provide peanut free and kosher options.  Please visit www.smartlunches.com to view menu and to place your order (beginning in early June). Smart Lunches provide families with a variety of food choices (hot or cold) and with the flexibility of ordering lunch one to five days per week. 

The camp provides a morning and afternoon snack for all campers. Snack items include goldfish, graham crackers, pretzels and/or saltines. Water or juice (diluted) is provided to our lower campers. Families may choose to send in an alternative snack. Intermediate, upper and senior campers should bring one or two beverages to have with snack and/or lunch.  Water bottles are strongly encouraged and may be filled up throughout the day.

Please see our nut-free policy below.

 

Is the camp nut free?

 

Please note that our Lower Camp Division (Ages 3-5) is nut-free. All lunches for campers in this division must be free from nut products and are checked daily by staff. In the Intermediate, Upper and Senior camp divisions, nut products are allowed in lunches; specific policies and procedures are taught to campers and staff in order to provide both sensitivity and safety to all campers with allergies.  Please contact the director at campdirector@tchs.org for more information.

 

 

 

 

 

Can my child be in a group with his/her friends?

You are welcome to make friendship requests for your camper. The friend(s) must be in the same age group/grade in order for us to be able to place them together.  We can only guarantee one friend, however, we can typically accommodate multiple friends.  You may submit your requests during the registration process.

Do lower campers need to be potty trained?

Yes. Due to local board of health regulations, all campers need to be potty trained and are not permitted to wear pull-ups. Staff will work with families as this is sometimes an ongoing process for three year olds. Families can enroll without penalty and withdraw at any time if you feel your child will not be ready for camp.
