Under the supervision of Food Service Manager Gabe Moore, the Jawbone Flats Kitchen prepares and serves the most delicious food you’re likely to find in a camp facility. All food served is vegetarian and much of it is homemade, from the breads and cereals to the sauces and dressings. We strive to purchase organic, non-GMO food from local farmers, producers, and independent retailers.

The cost of meals is covered for program participants and typically includes dinner on the day of arrival through lunch on the day of departure. Cabin renters are invited to join in for meals at the below prices when they are available, or when their group totals 10 or more adults.
Food allergies and dietary restrictions can be accommodated with adequate notice. However, please note we are unable to cater to food preferences. Cooking for large groups is a big job – please do not make unnecessary requests of our hard-working kitchen staff.
Meals are served family style. We do not publish a menu but are confident you’ll love what we serve! Costs and meal times are as follows:
*8 o’clock a.m., **$12
Breakfast typically includes either hot or cold cereal, juice, coffee, tea, fresh fruit and another main dish (a scramble, pancakes, French toast, etc.)
***you-pack-it at the close of breakfast (typically 9:30 a.m.), $10
Lunch typically includes fruit and vegetables, dessert, and build-your-own sandwich fixings (peanut butter and jelly, cheeses, spreads, cold salads, and vegetables, etc.)
6:30 p.m., $18
Dinners vary greatly from pizza to Pad Thai, hearty stews and roasted vegetables in the colder months to bountiful, colorful salads in the summer months. Dessert is always served, usually with plentiful amounts of whipped cream!
*Meal times may vary to accommodate certain programs such as the WMI courses. Should there be a variance to these published meal times, your camp host will notify you.
**Costs for children 4-13 are half the published meal costs. Children 3 and under eat free.
***Sit-down lunch is available upon request and served during certain programs. Cost for a sit-down lunch is $15/adult. Program lunches are pack-your-own unless otherwise specified.
