Lunch & Snacks
To make sure our campers are fueled with healthy food options Triple C Camp provides a nutritious morning and afternoon snack each day as well as delicious lunches.
Our lunches are based on a two-week rotation. Each meal has a main entree, vegetables and fruits, a variety of lettuce salad with dressing, and a crunch. The salty crunch (chip variety or pretzels) helps to encourage additional water intake. There is also the option of Peanut Butter &/or Jelly. Seconds are available on the main entree, and up to thirds on fruits and vegetables. Drink choices of water and vitamin enhanced juice complement the meal.
Sample main entrees include: Burgers, pasta, chicken nuggets, turkey hot dogs, fish, pizza sticks, turkey wraps, corn dog nuggets…Food kids like to eat.
To encourage trying new foods, we will always offer a “two-bite try it” portion to campers who are experiencing things for the first time. Often this little bit of encouragement is the perfect solution to trying new foods!
Campers that have special dietary requirements are welcome to pack a non-refrigerated lunch any day of the week.
Teen Scene (7th – 9th grade) campers must bring a non-perishable lunch for days they are out of camp: Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday,

Following a healthy lunch our campers help to wash their plate, cup and utensils. With the help of the counselors, campers practice the proper technique to wash, rinse and sanitize their dishes. Our dedicated kitchen staff will give everything an additional once over to ensure cleanliness. This level of responsibility builds our camper’s confidence as they see what an important role in the camp community they play.
At Triple C we are focused on reducing our impact on the environment. At lunch we compost fruits, vegetables and grains. We also encourage campers to “take what they need and eat what they take” to reduce food waste. Each week our campers are invited to participate our compost and food waste programs. Together we are working to make choices that are good for us and the earth.
