For boarding campers, breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served in the on-campus cafeteria, the Great Hall. This facility is peanut free – with exception of individually packaged peanut butter.

Day campers are served lunch and dinner. The first meal served at camp is dinner on check-in day and the last meal is breakfast on check-out day. Snacks and beverages may be purchased from the concession stand located in Cameron Indoor Stadium. Campers are welcome to have non-perishable snacks and drinks in their dorm rooms but the rooms are not equipped with refrigerators.

The cafeteria where our campers eat is the Duke University campus cafeteria that serves Duke students so they are also accustomed to accommodating numerous dietary needs and restrictions and there is a wide variety of food offered at each meal.

Should your camper have any dietary needs or allergy restrictions that need to be brought to our attention, let us know in advance on the online registration form. The form has fields for the type of allergy and the procedure our camp staff should follow in case a reaction occurs at camp. We also ask that those campers and their families visit with our camp medical training staff at their check-in table so that they can discuss, in detail, the condition and any concerns. If the camper has an epi-pen for emergency use, we ask that you bring one for us to have in the camp training room in Cameron Indoor Stadium and we also ask that the camper bring along a string backpack clearly labeled with his name so that he can carry the epi-pen with him as he goes from place-to-place on campus.

Contact Kenny King at Kenny.king@duaa.duke.edu if you have additional questions or concerns.
