Yawgoog Scout Reservation Food Service Department Special Diet Request Form
At Yawgoog Scout Reservation we strive to make a stay at summer camp enjoyable and possible for all Scouts and leaders, regardless of any dietary restriction they may have. We recognize the concern that a parent or leader may have when sending a Scout with a food allergy to camp, especially for the first time. If any of your Scouts of Leaders have a special diet, please fill out the form below and send it to us, prior to your arrival at camp. Feel free to attach a list of foods that can, or cannot be eaten, and any other pertinent information. If the Scout or Leader has a severe condition that requires them to consume a diet entirely composed of highly specialized foods, we encourage you to provide us with those foods and we will be glad to store and prepare them for you. We ask that all who submit a SPECIAL DIET REQUEST form meet with their CAMP’S CHEF Monday morning immediately after breakfast to ensure that all needs are known, and provided for. Over the years, we have become proficient at handling certain diets in particular; these include (but are not limited to) gluten-free, dairy and egg free.
Nut Allergies: The dining halls at Yawgoog Scout Reservation are nut-free facilities; we use a soy nut butter product in its place. Be advised, the camp Trading Posts do have candy bars that may contain nut products in them. Please do not submit a form if the only allergy is nuts. Special Diets are only available for medical and religious reasons or if the adult or camper is either a vegetarian or vegan. We cannot offer special diets because of lifestyles of scouts or scouters. We recommend that campers bring supplements in the event that our menu does not suit their liking. Jelly and soy butter are available to anyone at any meal. Menu: Regular Vegetarian Gluten Free r
