We provide a supervised place to eat lunch for students that want to attend both afternoon and morning sessions. Those planning on staying during the lunch hour will need to bring a sack lunch.

Camp instructors respectfully request that children leave fidget spinners, tablets, and any devices that "distract from the learning environment" at home.
