Food, Glorious Food
Without great tasting and healthy food a summer camp is no fun at all. At Long Lake we take the same approach to food as we do the rest of camp. It has to be awesome and campers should have choices everyday. We have a large dinning hall with two service lines so campers spend little time waiting to eat and more time to be with their friends. Our food choices are all created at camp by our head Chef Daryl and his staff of 14 cooks. We are able to accommodate almost any eating preference, from nut free to gluten free, vegetarian, vegan, and more. Our chef meets each camper personally that may need some extra attention in the preparation of their meals. We do not use nuts or nut oils in any of our cooking, but we do have a separate peanut butter and jelly station.
We offer fresh fruit all day and we have an extensive fresh quality salad bar for lunch and dinner. Breakfast are a combination of hot entrée options, cereal, toast, a yogurt bar, tea, coffee and many juices. Lunches and dinners are different every day and there are always multiple options. We have created a great tasting menu that campers love to eat but is still healthy, nutritious and inciting. We have a snack at 4:15pm each day, with fresh fruit, cookies and juice. After dinner at 7pm, we have canteen on the south lawn overlooking the lake. We offer candy, healthy options and drinks to those campers would like them. There are candy cruises on the lake on our pontoon boat often drive by one of the camps owners, captain Marc Katz.
On Fridays we have an outdoor BBQ over looking our beautiful lake and mountains. With whole fresh corn on the cob and perfectly grilled burgers and vegetarian options.
For campers ages 8 to 16 looking to learn how to prepare great food, we offer private and small group cooking classes. We also make large, extravagant birthday cakes for any campers or staff who will have a birthday with us.
