Your kids can bring their own lunch to summer camp. Or you can sign up for our optional healthy lunch program and score some summer relief for yourself, too.

We partner with school lunch purveyor extraordinaire, Choicelunch, to provide the most nutritious, delicious meals around. The Choicelunch menu is large, with more than five lunch entrée options every day. The choices change constantly, but perennial options include Annie’s Organic mac and cheese, California roll, shredded beef tacos and Caesar salad.

What's Included:

With Choicelunch, every day includes a morning snack, plus a lunch comprised of a generous entrée, a healthy snack and fresh-cut fruit.

Please note that a drink is not included. Be sure to pack your own.

How Much it Costs:

Lunch is $35 a week and $28 the week of July 4 (June 30 - July 3).

How to Sign Up:

Order Choicelunch when you sign up for camp. To add lunch to an existing order, log in to your Galileo account, click "Add Sessions/Lunch/Extended Care" next to your camper’s name, select your camp and click the "Lunch" box for the weeks you want to add lunch.

All lunch orders must be received by Wednesday at 5 pm the week before camp.

How to Customize Your Lunch Order:

Choicelunch automatically assigns your camper a different entrée for every day of the week. If the set menu looks good to you, there’s nothing more you need to do. If you'd like to customize your camper’s menu, click here for directions.

All lunch order customization must be completed by Thursday at 5 pm the week before camp.
