Daily Lunch and Snacks

To keep our campers energized, and to make life easier on you, daily lunch and snacks are included in full-day Poly Summer programs. We serve up all of the healthy and well-balanced favorites that campers love in our air-conditioned dining hall. Water coolers are scattered across our campus, and counselors ensure that campers stay hydrated throughout the day.

During six-week programs, campers look forward to festive camp-wide barbecues where they picnic with their friends on our grassy hills. At all meals, our littlest campers are served family style while our bigger kids enjoy the independence that comes with serving themselves.

Food Allergies

Food allergies are a fact of life for some of our campers and we take that very seriously.

To make life safer and easier on kids who are allergic, we take the following precautions:

  • Poly Summer is nut safe. There are no peanuts or tree nuts served and there are no hidden nut products found in any of our foods.
  • We exclude all pre-packaged snacks that are “produced in a facility that process peanuts and tree nuts,” according to their ingredient labels.
  • We offer dairy-free and gluten-free lunch and snack alternatives each day.
  • We do not allow camp families to send in any outside food for birthdays or special occasions.
  • Our food service staff is trained and certified in ServSafe and allergy management in the kitchen.
  • Our camp staff receives extensive food allergy training and closely supervises all meals with their campers.
  • We maintain a central listing of all foods served by the camp and their detailed ingredient lists in the Poly Summer office for parents to look through before camp.

If you have a food-related question or concern, please contact us prior to the start of camp season, so we can meet with you in person to discuss how we can best accommodate your child’s needs.
