Meals & Dining

Stone Canyon offers incredibly delicious meals like no other camp! Our chefs will take excellent care of your students, providing nutritious options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Vegetarian options, fresh fruit and desserts are provided. We are a nut-free facility, and are able to accommodate most food-related allergies or dietary restrictions.

We also run "family-style" meals to bring back the original social networking: conversation and emphasizing connecting with peers! Students are assigned a table group throughout their stay and take turns setting the table, fetching food, and cleaning the table. Additionally, students learn about Ort (a scrap piece of food) and strive to keep their food waste down throughout their stay.  Click here for a sample menu.
