Less than a week to WITW 2015!

August 5, 2015

 

In less than a week we'll be at camp! How exciting! 

 

If you haven't already, this is a great time to up your intake of garlic and of vitamin B, as those both seem to help fend off mosquitos. As a reminder, our camp is fragrance free, so bug sprays that have a scent, even if it's herbal, must be avoided for the safety of our campers with chemical injuries. We will provide odorless DEET for those who'd like to use that. 

 

We've got some great items for the auction, and want to encourage you to bring items to add to the auction, as well as cash to buy tickets! It's also a great time to talk with your younger kids about the auction, that it is how we raise funds to give scholarships, and what it's like to win things or not win things. 

 

Also, if for some reason, you didn't receive our Witchlets Camp 2015 Registration packet, you can find it here: Registration Packet 2015.

 

Chef Ross and the cooking team have worked hard to make sure that everyone's food needs are covered. Sauces and most accompaniments are on the side; sandwiches and salads are served with separate components, for people to serve themselves. Please take a look below at the menu and what will be offered, and if you feel as though the menu will not meet your needs or that you or your children may want or need food items that are not in the menu, please be sure to bring whatever additional foods you'll need to meet your needs. As a reminder, there is a fridge in the dining hall for camper items. 

 

Due to SEVERE (life threatening) ALLERGIES in our camp community, we request that you refrain from bringing the following foods:

NO PEANUTS (including peanut butter, peanut oil, and all peanut products, and foods containing peanut products)

NO SHELLFISH (including shrimp, crab, lobster, clams, oysters, etc., asian fish sauce, and any shellfish product)

NO SUNFLOWER SEEDS

NO TREE NUTS — unfortunately we learned about this last allergy too late to change the menu, so you will find walnuts, almond butter, and almond milk on the menu. We ask that you use care when serving yourselves these foods and guide your children in serving themselves, so as to avoid contamination of the main food dishes. 

 

Please make sure that any of your own food you bring to camp, and plan to keep in your cabin or tent, is stored in rodent proof containers and not attractive to ants. Cabins are rustic and have plenty of places for critters to get in. There are mice, chipmunks, and ants at camp, all of whom would be delighted to investigate your food stores.
