“This Is The Best Food Ever! Better Than At Home!”

While this is not necessarily something every parent wants to hear, it is music to our food service crew’s ears. Our experienced chefs work hard every day to provide a camper dining experience with three balanced, nutritious, and tasty meals for campers. And of course, they are still designed around what children like to eat.

Meals are served in our dining hall overlooking the rolling hills of camp. Buffet-style serving allows AstroCamp to serve a wider variety of foods to meet the appetites of every camper. We are also very attentive to the special dietary needs of our campers, especially those with food allergies. Are you vegetarian, vegan or gluten free? We can accommodate your dietary needs!

Our Summer Camp Director would be happy to speak with parents regarding the dietary needs or restrictions of their child. Please contact John Swanwick at john@gdi.org or 434-454-4059.
