Food at Camp:

Keeping campers satisfied at camp is critical to their well-being. Our Chef and his team design menus that keep kids’ tastes in mind, while emphasizing nutrition and balance.  

We serve three meals per day, as well as two snack periods in the late afternoon and before bedtime. All meals are buffet style. On Friday nights we have a traditional dinner complete with roasted chicken, potatoes, freshly baked challah and chicken noodle soup. Our staff help campers make healthy choices so that they are getting enough food at each meal and ensure they are eating a balanced diet. In addition to our regular menu, a salad bar is available at all meals to provide fresh fruits, vegetables and other healthy protein alternatives.

Food service at camp is served kosher style. We are capable of accommodating vegetarian, gluten free, lactose free and other special dietary needs.


Each camper receives tuck, on average, three times per week. Our camp fee includes all regular tuck shop purchases, including snack and beverage items, as well as replacement toiletries such as a toothbrush, toothpaste, soap and shampoo.


Peanut/Tree Nut free at Camp Timberlane means that our food does not contain peanuts, peanut butter, peanut oil or any form or derivative of peanut or tree nut in the least.  Our peanut/tree nut free foods do not contain peanut stearate or “traces of peanut”.  Even if the ingredient label reads, “May have traces of nuts or peanut,” we treat this label as if it read, “has nuts or peanuts”.

As a Peanut/Tree Nut Free camp we make every attempt to ensure that no person is placed in a situation and/or environment that may endanger their life and therefore we take the following precautions:

  • Every summer our staff are re-educated about the dangers that can be associated with peanuts and similar nut products to children & adults with severe allergies.
  • Parents of children who have a known allergy to nuts / peanuts are consulted prior to camp with regard to the severity of the childʼs allergy, the symptoms and the emergency procedures to be followed in case of an allergic reaction.
  • Every child with a NUT allergy will carry and have direct access to an Epipen, all staff are trained on how to administer an Epipen.
  • No food of any kind will be allowed to be brought into camp.
