Yes you may send snacks/sweets with the kids. Try not to pack too much, we dont want them getting sick.

Please try to avoid nut products if possible, just in case. If we are aware of another child in the group with certain allergies we may ask you to avoid products with a certain allergen in it.

My child has specific dietary requirements, what does this mean for them at camp?

Gluten Free participants will need to pay an additonal $30 so we can provide them with GF alternative foods during the 2 day camp. It is $55 during the 3 day camp.

We are happy to adhere to alternative dietary plans and have one ready for Vegetarian and GF riders. If we need alternate foods for your child we will ask you to provide or pay an additional amount for replacement foods.
