WHAT IS FOR LUNCH & SNACK
A cooked lunch will be provided at no extra charge made right on site by our cook. We follow USDA guidelines with all of our meals and ensure all children receive a nutritious and healthy snack in the afternoon. Here is our menu. Alternatives available at every lunch are breakfast cereal (usually cheerios and cornflakes) and peanut butter and jelly sandwich (it's actually soynut butter but we still call it peanut butter).
If you would like to pack your own lunch, you may certainly do so. All we ask is that your child eat their packed lunch if you pack it. Please do not pack peanut products as we try not to have nuts on site.
Of course the Snack Shack is available too, at rest hour. If you have questions about our menu please email us.
WHAT ABOUT HEALTH & WELLNESS?
A New York State licensed Registered Nurse (RN) is on duty 24/7 at Camp Scully. The nurse takes care of all medications and bumps and bruises. Rest assured, if anything happens to your child they will receive prompt and expert professional care and you will be contacted. You will need a completed Medical Form.
