We understand food allergies may be a concern for some students. Unfortunately, due to the limited kitchen access at the campground, we ask that parents pack any snacks or food items that your child may need for the 4 days while they're attending camp. Please call if you have any questions: Gabby Sebastian (813)-440-8820
