Important Reminders About Food and Safety
A Word About Candy & Food at WeHaKee Camp for Girls
Please know that all campers have access to snacks and beverages each afternoon at the Snack Window at the Trading Post (at no extra charge). Fresh fruit is available and accessible all day in the camp dining hall. Dessert is served at lunch and dinner. With respect to increased food borne allergies, dietary concerns & sensitivities, WeHaKee reserves the right to remove/confiscate any food items that a camper may bring to or receive at camp. The presence of candy and other snacks creates challenges in maintaining a healthy, safe and sustainable environment for all of our campers & staff. Specifically…
- Campers may bring (or have shipped) one snack/food item to share in their cabin during their session. For sharing purposes, it is suggested that 10 servings (preferably individually wrapped) be brought to allow sharing with all members of the cabin group. Food items in excess of the one permitted will be removed/confiscated.
- All packages shipped to campers will be opened in the presence of camp staff. Again, any food items in excess of the one permitted will be removed/confiscated.
- Items MUST BE peanut and tree-nut free! Confiscated items will be donated to a local food shelf.
- Help us be environmentally conscious! Please avoid sending small wrapped candies such as Jolly Ranchers, Starburst, etc. as the wrappers often end up littering camp!
Suggested Care Package Items to Send to Your Camper
We encourage non-food items such as books and magazines, cabin party favors/decorations, dress-up clothes, games and puzzles, markers, crayons, pens, stuffed animals, posters, family photos, or other group novelty items that can be shared with all.
