For longer camps that are in session during the lunch period, lunch will be available for an additional charge. These optional lunches must be purchased for the whole week and paid for when registering for the camp. Students in the longer camps, who do not wish to purchase their lunch, must bring a packed lunch, with the understanding that the ability to keep the lunch cold is extremely limited and, depending on the location of the camp, may not be available at all.
