MEALS AT CAMP HOPE
Camp life requires a lot of energy. That’s why proper nutrition and good summer camp food is so important at Camp Hope. We serve three hearty, nutritious meals as well as a midday snack. Nobody has ever left Camp Hope hungry!
Each morning we may start off with a big breakfast of eggs, bacon and biscuits with gravy or possibly pancakes and sausage. We also offer milk, orange juice, assorted cereals, fruits, and yogurts. For lunch, we offer items such as grilled cheese and tomato soup or hot dogs and hamburgers.
For lunch and dinner we also have a salad bar! We offer a large variety of hot meals from Chicken to our delicious Roast Beef for our evening meal. We encourage campers to try a variety of foods.
Following each lunch and dinner are surprise deserts of homemade chocolate chip cookies or ice cream sundaes. Everyone loves desert.
Meals are served in a traditional family style and campers serve as table waiters. Meals are a favorite time at camp. The fellowship and ordered chaos are awesome! We have time to reflect and share our “best times” with our camper friends. Our campers are instructed in basic table manners and engage in good conversation. Meals are always opened with thanks and usually closed with song. After many evening programs, the children are treated to milk and cookies!!
CAMP HOPE HEALTH & WELLNESS
Here at Camp Hope, we have a registered nurse living on campus at all times. She is a nurse but she is also a ‘camp mom’ who is looking out for the well being and safety of all of our campers. During the check in process on the first day of your session, each camper will meet with the nurses for a wellness check. Parents may take this time to discuss any pertinent information as well as leave all medications at the infirmary.
Each day after morning meal and evening meal campers with medications will meet the nurse and be given whatever is prescribed to that camper. No prescriptions or OTC medications of any kind are allowed in the cabin. Rest assured that your children are getting excellent medical care and attention while they are with us.
