Food Service

The Food Service team at Camp Huronda is experienced at providing planned, nutritious meals and snacks and works closely with a team of registered dietitians during the summer season. Our Food Service team works hard to accommodate the dietary needs of our participants. As part of the booking process, a form will be completed to communicate any allergies, dietary preferences, and food sensitivities, so we can best accommodate the group.  Our Food Service team has experience working with the following dietary accommodations: vegetarian, vegan, lactose-free, gluten-free and celiac, kosher, and halal.

Camp Huronda is a peanut, nut, and shellfish-sensitive facility. Any ingredients served from our facility will not contain nuts and shellfish. For any group who chooses to bring a bagged lunch or snacks, we ask you avoid bringing any food products that contain any of these ingredients.

PROGRAMMING OPTIONS

We are happy to customize our program to fit your needs and group. Upon booking with us, you have to option of picking specific programs and activities, or we will craft a schedule for you. The schedule is typically structured into multiple activity rotations, with each rotation group ranging from 10 to 15 participants. The ideal rotation is 1 to 1.5 hours in length, so there’s sufficient time for instruction and reviewing safety policies, and so each participant has plenty of opportunity to try that activity. 

If you have specific inquiries or wish to begin a booking, please send a message to the Outdoor Centre Director at Griffin.Moore@diabetes.ca and include the following:

  • Name of School, Organization, or Group
  • Dates
  • Size of Group
  • Contact Information
