Health & Nutrition
Food at camp is an integral part of the Camp Mountain Chai experience. After all, we eat three meals a day!
Our kitchen is nut-free and serves only Kosher food prepared under rabbinical supervision. Our carefully prepared menus are “kid-friendly” and varied. There is always something healthy and delicious to eat.
Every breakfast includes a yogurt bar, an oatmeal bar, a cereal bar, fresh cut fruit, jelly and toast. During lunch and dinner, we provide a full salad bar with tons of options that gives choices to campers.
During each meat meal there is a protein-based vegetarian option for our campers who are vegetarians. Gluten free meals and desserts are also prepared when needed for those campers who have gluten allergies. We also offer a snack table where campers can get peaches, plums, apples and bananas at any point during the day.
Camp Mountain Chai proudly manages our own food service utilizing professionally trained chefs. Our mission is to deliver excellent, healthy and delicious meals prepared by expert chefs and classically trained professionals certified in nutrition and sanitation.
Our Mirpa’ah (Health Center) is staffed 24 hours a day by our resident physician and nurses. We have a physician and registered nurse at camp throughout the entire summer. Our medical facility includes a welcome center, examination room, office, recovery rooms, and living quarters for our medical staff.
All medications (with the exception of asthmatic inhalers and EPI-pens) are kept in the Mirpa’ah and distributed by our nurse at during med call. Med call times are breakfast, lunch, dinner, and right before bed.
