Our state-of-the-art kitchen is fully kosher and has two separate kitchens: one for meat and one for dairy.

Dietary Restrictions & Food Allergies

We serve vegetarian, gluten-free, and dairy-free options at each meal. We will always accommodate campers with food allergies and ensure they are safe and well-fed at camp. Note on nut allergies: CYJ cannot be an entirely nut-free camp because some of the prepared or frozen foods we use may have been prepared on factory equipment that also processes nuts. However, we do not serve nut products at camp, and nuts do not enter our kitchen.

Picky Eaters

We encourage our campers to try new foods, but they may still encounter a main course that they’re not interested in. We keep several staple foods available at every meal for that situation. With our fresh fruits, salad bar, soy butter and jelly, steamed vegetables, and plain pasta, even the pickiest CYJers can find food they enjoy.
