What's on the menu at CYJ?
CYJ offers a healthy and kid-friendly menu, with the ingredients and variety that’ll keep your campers (and parents) satisfied!
Our state-of-the-art kitchen includes three hot buffet lines and two separate kosher kitchens. We serve vegetarian, gluten-free, and dairy-free options at each meal. We always have options for any child with an allergy. To accommodate campers with food allergies, absolutely no nuts enter our kitchen.
Here’s a short list of some of our classic camp meals:
- For breakfast: french toast, pancakes, waffles, bagels, biscuits & gravy, or breakfast tacos.
- For lunch: hamburgers, chicken fajitas, beef and broccoli, chili hot dogs, chicken nuggets, meatball sandwiches, chicken schnitzel, beef tacos, or chicken stir-fry.
- For dinner: baked potato and soup, specialty pizza, cheese enchiladas, baked ziti, grilled cheese and tomato soup, or pasta with alfredo sauce.
We encourage our campers to try new foods, but they still may encounter a main course that they’re just not interested in. We keep a number of staple foods available at every meal for just such a situation. With our fresh fruits, salad bar, soy butter "peanut butter" and jelly, steamed vegetables and plain pasta, even the pickiest CYJers can find food that they enjoy.
Note on nut allergies: CYJ cannot claim to be an entirely nut-free camp because some of the prepared or frozen foods we use may have been prepared on equipment in factories that also process nuts. We will always accommodate campers with allergies and make sure that they are safe and well-fed at camp.
