Meals and Nutrition

Sources tell us that the Jacobs Dining Hall is the place to be this summer. We’ll see you there! WARNING: Reading this page may cause you to get really, really hungry!!

Almost all meals are served family-style in the dining hall, with bunks eating together at assigned tables. The only exceptions to this are Friday night dinner – when open-seating is often made an option to campers – and Sunday nights, when we will have a cookout buffet.

The Jacobs Camp is not a kosher facility, and we do not have a kosher kitchen or kosher plates and utensils. However, we do not serve pork or shellfish, or products containing them. Whenever meat is served, a vegetarian option is offered, and a non-dairy dessert is made available.  We will also accommodate campers on special allergy- or health-related diets. Please make us aware of your needs in advance. Two snacks are served every day.
