Important Reminders About Food and Safety

A Word About Candy & Food at WeHaKee Camp for Girls

We are sorry, but for the safety of all of our campers, staff and guests, WEHAKEE CAMP FOR GIRLS CAN NOT ALLOW FOOD OR BEVERAGES THAT ARE BROUGHT TO CAMP BY CAMPERS OR SENT TO CAMPERS AT CAMP. With the ever increasing prevalence of food borne allergies and sensitivities (many can be life-threatening); we can no longer allow campers to have food or beverage items that may risk the health of other campers.

Please know that all campers have access to a beverage and snack each afternoon at the Trading Post. There is no extra charge as this is provided as part of the camper’s tuition.

If campers bring or are sent food or beverage items, these items must be stored away from the cabin. If the camper is riding the bus home, these items will not be returned as they may present a risk to any campers with food borne allergies.

We encourage non-food items such as books, board or card games or other group novelty items that can be shared with all, be sent to our campers.
