Food Services (Nom-nom-nom)- Meals, Snacks & Special Diets

The Food Service Department at Camp Couchiching is committed to "Excellence". In the interest of providing meals that are both nutritional and child focused, our full service dining hall offers a menu that boasts of variety and detail for our hungry campers. Three meals are served each day with an evening snack before bed every night.

Special Diets

With special focus on ensuring any child can attend camp, we strive to cater to many special diets. Our Dietary Specialist assists with the preparation of special diets and works with each child's counselor to ensure that campers with dietary needs are supported fully while at camp.

In addition to special diets, we are also allergy conscious. As a result, Camp Couchiching works hard to be a nut - sensitive site. We don't serve food with known nuts or peanuts in them and we work diligently with our food providers to ensure they don't send us products which "may contain" nuts or peanuts.

We encourage anyone interested to please inquire about any other dietary restrictions or allergies.  With parental help, we can accommodate many special diets.
