Here’s to Your Health!

1) Tyler Hill Camp.
2) Lots of happy children.
3) Healthy foods served daily.

Mix these ingredients altogether on a warm sunny day with friends, swimming, awesome activities, laughter, singing and some arts & crafts. Let sit until an appetite ensues… Your final product? A well-fed Tyler Hill Camper!

In our continuing effort to partner with our parents, we are committed to serving healthy & tasty foods where the menus are nutritionally balanced and offer a range of textures and tastes that will appeal to any child. We take your child’s nutrition seriously at Tyler Hill and we do our best to make sure that what we have on-hand for your child is only the healthiest of healthy!

As you know, kids will eat mostly what’s made available to them. Every day, campers can have their fill of fresh fruits, vegetables and grains from our daily, endless salad bars and our all-day fresh fruit stations. Choose from a variety of fresh greens such as, broccoli, cauliflower, green and red peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, beets, chick peas, hard boiled eggs, health salad, whole-grain breads, pita and low or no fat dressings (And there’s so much more!)  We also offer daily low fat yogurts, serve whole-wheat pasta and have whole-wheat bread for sandwiches. At our BBQ, campers can munch on veggie burgers in addition to the usual Hebrew National hot dogs and hamburgers. We of course still serve pizza, chicken tenders, french fries and tacos, but we’re bragging about all of the healthy choices we’ve made available for our campers!

Even snacks of fresh fruit are available daily to campers starting at 10:30 a.m. They can walk up to the porch of their “HC” and grab the “fruit of the day”…whether it’s a plum, peach, apple, banana…you get the picture!

And for campers who have food allergies or special dietary needs, we have a special person on staff who assists the Division Leaders, counselors and campers in addressing those needs.

We’re in this together and we know that a well-fed camper makes a happy camper!!
