2021 Food and Wellness

Wyonegonic Food Service

We provide nutritious, delicious and varied meals. Our menus are planned with fresh, natural and seasonal ingredients in mind. Meals are primarily served both in the Cobb Dining Hall and sometimes in the Units. 

Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be a staff served buffet, cafeteria style or served family style. There will be no self served buffet. Seating will be assigned by cabin groups. At the Cobb Dining Hall campers sit with cabinmates at picnic tables on our wraparound covered porch. Healthy food, variety and introduction to different foods is important to us at Wyonegonic. Breakfast features a hot item, granola, yogurts, hot and cold cereals, and fresh fruit. Lunch will offer healthy choices that includes a warm entree, a salad and sandwich option, fruit and a soup station. Dinner will include an entree, vegetable and appropriate starch. We prepare and serve an alternative creative vegetarian option each evening for dinner. A desert item will be offered at lunch or dinner. In the interest of health, we do not use a deep fryer and limit high fructose corn syrup and trans fats.

Meals in the units may include a cookout with burgers, hot dogs, veggie burgers, chips, salads, watermelon and “Congo Bars” for dessert. Sometimes a continental breakfast or lunch items may be delivered to the unit.

Our kitchen is staffed with a head chef, meal cooks, assistant/prep cooks and general assistants who are typically college-age staff, who help with food prep, dish-washing and sanitation. Camp Staff help set and clear tables and take turns sweeping and sanitizing after each meal. 

No food is permitted in the camper cabins. All food is stored in the camp dining hall and  served at the camp dining hall or in the unit wiggies.. Campers cannot keep food items in their cabins. 

No candy or food will be permitted through the mail service or brought into camp by campers upon arrival. Your daughter will get limited sweets as it is our practice to serve ice cream or novelties twice a week; candy twice a week (with fresh fruit, granola bars, raisins, and trail mix as alternatives); and special treats at some of our traditional events. 

Special Dietary Restrictions: If your camper has any special dietary restrictions due to medical reasons it must be listed on the health history form. It is important to communicate any restrictions at time of registration. We encourage communication with Wyonegonic nurses prior to arrival and ask you to confirm restrictions with our health center staff on opening day at the health screening. 

Food Allergies: Please list any food allergies on your campers health history form. Wyonegonic is not a nut free facility however, we do not use nuts in our cooking or baked goods. We also avoid purchasing pre-packaged baked goods labeled as being produced in facilities with traces of nut products. Peanut butter may be offered with restricted access for a protein option at lunch. Our Trip program adjusts and modifies the food options and menu for the entire group if a food allergy will be present on the trip.
