JCC Camps at Medford
When you're a kid, every summer matters.

Lunch & Snacks

Your child is provided with a kosher* lunch each day in the air-conditioned lunch room. The Camp lunch is reviewed by nutritionists who make recommendations on menu items that will be varied, nutritious, and appealing to children, and provides alternatives.

Due to many peanut and nut allergies the JCC Camps at Medford is a peanut and tree nut aware facility. We do not serve peanut butter or products made with nuts. This applies to our lunchroom and to all of our activity area.We request that camp families not send any snacks with nuts in the ingredients to camp or on the camp vehicles. Although it is impossible to guarantee that camp can be fully peanut free due to what might inadvertently be brought in by others,  we are striving to ensure that we are as close to peanut-free as possible and have replaced peanut butter with alternatives such as sun and soy nut butter.

Camp also accommodates the dietary needs of virtually all other campers with food allergies such as gluten, dairy, egg, soy, and more.We have a nutritional consultant at camp charged with reviewing all food labels to insure the safety of our campers.

  • Menus are posted online prior to each Camp season and are subject to change due to availability or freshness.
  • Beverages, fruits, vegetables (baby carrots, celery sticks, salad) and snack are always provided. Ice water, 1% white milk and 1% chocolate milk are served with non-meat meals, and sugar free juice drinks and ice water are served with meat meals.
  • Non-sugar cereal (Cheerios, Rice Crispies, Chex), soy butter, sun butter, and jelly are available every day.
  • Yogurt and bagels and cream cheese are available on non-meat days.
  • Tuna fish and bagels and margarine are available on meat days.
  • For refreshing afternoon snacks, Camp provides non dairy ices and popsicles on meat days and ice cream, ices and popsicles on non-meat days.
  • Ingredients and nutritional information is provided for items served at lunch – just click on that item on the online menu below and it should come up.  In addition, one of our nurses is responsible for overseeing what is being served each day and communicating with our parents.  She can be reached at nurses@jfedsnj.org, or during Camp in the Camp Nurses Office
  • Please do not send lunch to camp. If you need to send your camper with food from home for medical reasons, you must have approval from the camp director, who can be reached at agreenberg@jfedsnj.org.  It is our goal to be able to provide appropriate alternatives so that sending lunch becomes unnecessary. 
  • For a list of gluten free items, please click here.
  • During the 9 days preceding the observance of Tisha B’Av, no meat is served.

We recognize that each camper has different tastes and not every child will enjoy every part of every meal. But now more than ever, each camper will have more of a variety of choices to choose from. We hope you enjoy our camp lunch program. We welcome input to help us get even better.
