Meals will be an authentic blend of a rustic campers cuisine and military-grade rations. Be sure to note any dietary restrictions on your registration form. We will do our best to accommodate needs, but if you have a severe allergy or specific dietary restriction (vegan, gluten-free, etc.), we recommend you bring your own food. We will happily store it in the kitchen/fridge for you.

 

CAN I BRING MY OWN FOOD?

If you have any specific foods you need to eat, please feel free to bring them. But remember, there are wild animals everywhere in the Northwest. Please store all food appropriately or ask a counselor to store it in the camp kitchen.

 

WILL THERE BE ALCOHOL?

Alright, you lushes. We knew this one would come up. Beer & wine will be served at the Collective Campout, but, as they say, drink responsibly. Alcohol will be regulated by camp staff and campers are not permitted to bring their own.
