Important Reminders About Food and Safety
A Word About Candy & Food at Camp WeHaKee
Please know that all campers have access to snacks and beverages each afternoon through the Trading Post (at no extra charge). Dessert is served at lunch and dinner. With respect to increased food borne allergies, dietary concerns & sensitivities, WeHaKee will 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…
- All packages delivered to campers will be opened and inspected by camp staff to ensure that no food items have been sent to the camper. Again any food items will be confiscated. If appropriate, confiscated food items will be donated to a local food shelf.
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.
