A camp we eat communally, cooking over the fire and in our awesome kitchen! You have the opportunity to cook and lend a hand for every meal. We usually eat vegetarian at camp and ensure there is a vegan option. We eat meat on occasion so please feel free to bring meat and I’m sure you’ll have some very, very happy fellow meat eaters to share it with! If you have any other requirements and allergies let us know before you come so the kitchen crew can try to ensure there are options for you, alternatively feel free to bring along any food for yourself and use our kitchen to prepare it.
