Just like our program, our menu is all about personal choice.

Food is very important to our campers. Some kids like a lot of different foods but many prefer a few favorites. No matter what, you’ll find a huge selection at Camp Emerson. Our professional chefs cater to all tastes and special diets. We aim to please!
