Meals are a time to connect with friends and cabinmates over family-style entrées. Wildwood’s dining hall serves three meals daily and offers a variety of choices at each meal. Most meals are served family-style. Example meals include eggs, pancakes, sandwiches, turkey dinner, and spaghetti with meatballs, with additional choices at the salad bar. Snacks are generally available mid-afternoon and occasionally as part of an evening program.
Campers take turns setting the table, bringing serving dishes, and cleaning up the table and dining hall after each meal. Campers sit with their units during breakfast and dinner but can sit with friends from any part of camp at lunch.
Food Allergies & Special Diets
Our camp is proudly nut-free! Our kitchen is able to accommodate specific dietary needs including those of campers who follow vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free diets (and more!).
- A vegetarian option is available at each meal, and some meals may not include meat at all. We observe Meatless Mondays as part of our mission to protect the planet and reduce our carbon footprint. Vegan options are available when there are vegan campers or staff.
- We do not use peanut or tree nut products and non-dairy alternatives are available. If you need to bring a personal supply of food for a medical reason, ensure that any food brought to camp is free of peanuts or tree nuts, or traces of these.
- Any camper with an anaphylactic allergy must have a written allergy action plan signed by the prescribing physician.
- To protect all our campers and staff, campers without special medical needs should refrain from bringing food, candy, or drinks to camp.
