Camp Thorpe works hard to meet the diverse dietary requirements of our campers. We take pride in working with local farmers and dairies to provide fresh, seasonal produce, milk, eggs, meat and even coffee! Our chef bakes his own bread and a special treat each Friday to celebrate each week's birthdays. Camp serves three, family-style meals in our dining hall each day unless we have a sit-down cookout in our covered pavilion. Snacks are also served in the mid-morning and evening. We work hard to meet the needs of campers who need gluten-free, diabetic, vegetarian, allergy-based, or other diets. There is always a sandwich/salad alternative for each meal. Campers with extreme food allergies or restrictions are asked to bring their own snacks, and to work directly with the Camp Director to ensure that meals meet their requirements.
Camp Thorpe's focus is on meeting the needs of each individual camper; showing each that he/she has ability and potential. Participation is intended to further develop this potential. It is hoped that each camper will leave Camp Thorpe with feelings of self-respect, new leisure skills, respect for others and for nature.
