Food & Nutrition

Food is always a camper favorite at River Way!

With an abundant variety of locally sourced fresh food choices at every meal, our longtime chef of 25 years and his team know how to accommodate even the pickiest of eaters. Meals are served buffet-style, and campers enjoy eating with their cabins while building connection and community.

The day begins with a delicious hot breakfast, with hot entree options such as pancakes or waffles, scrambled eggs, turkey bacon, soy and dairy milk, fresh, cut fruit, cold and hot cereals, and more. Lunches and dinners always include at least two to three hot entree options, one of which always is vegetarian. Campers love building their own creations at our salad bar, which always includes fresh organic greens, assorted chopped vegetables, cold protein options, and several choices of dressing.

Water, juice, low-fat, and chocolate milk are available at every meal.

Snacks are available throughout the day for campers requiring between-meal snacks.

My son loved the food! He loved trying new things, and won’t stop talking about the nacho bar! As a parent, I was happy to hear that River Way had so many salads, fruits, and vegetables at every meal!Shireen, parent of Jake, 11
