Meals at Kettleby Valley Camp

Our Campers are provided with great summer camp meals served each day. Kids love our food. We serve camp meals that are healthy and nutritious, but also popular with our campers. We use real cheese rather than processed, whole wheat bread rather than white and we bake food rather than deep fry.

Allergies and dietary restrictions are easily accommodated, and vegetarian/vegan options are always available at our overnight camp.

At Kettleby Valley, we see a meal as being more than just a time to eat. It is also a chance to develop togetherness and community. Having the courage to try new things is an important lesson that children learn at summer camp and this extends to mealtime. We always encourage campers to try meals that perhaps they’ve never eaten before and the results are surprisingly positive.

Day Camp Lunch At Kettleby Valley

Everyone seems to love our day camp’s lunch program. We offer meals that are traditional favourites with children while maintaining their nutritional needs by serving whole wheat buns and bread, real cheese rather than processed. At each lunch we provide fresh veggies for every group. For day campers, hot lunches are delivered to their tent. Seconds are always offered and campers with dietary restrictions are packaged separately.

Despite our success with most campers, there are always a few who would rather maintain their current eating habits. We post our menu and encourage parents to review it prior to the beginning of their campers sessions. If there is something on the menu that simply won't work for your camper, please send them with enough food and snacks. 

We also cater to campers who have allergies and intolerances by offering substitutes that are the same or similar to what other campers are eating. When we serve pizza, we will also serve gluten free and dairy free pizza. This avoids campers with dietary restrictions from feeling left out. One mom said that out of all the Aurora day camps she considered, Kettleby Valley put the most effort into accommodating their family’s food needs.
