Children must bring an insulated lunch bag or lunch box and beverage with an ice pack if applicable (no glass containers and no Thermos bottles) each day, unless signed up for fun food lunches available 3 times a week (see options below). Because of the number of campers, lunches cannot be refrigerated. The only exception is on trip days when a completely disposable paper bag/plastic bag lunch and beverage is mandated unless the venue includes lunch in their admission prices. Refer to the Camp's Off-Site Trip and On-Site Reference Guide for details.
