Food at Camp Yavneh is delicious. Kitchen staff considers the desires of the campers and offers a variety of food choices. Breakfast includes cereals, bagels, yogurt, fresh fruit, juice and cottage cheese. Depending on the day, campers can also choose from eggs, pancakes, french toast, muffins and more. Lunch and dinner options include pizza, grilled cheese, fish filets, chicken, spaghetti and meatballs and schnitzel. Seconds are always available. And once a week, there is a bar-b-que buffet with hamburgers and hot dogs. For vegetarians, there is a salad bar with lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, a vegetarian option at all meat meals and a pasta bar for lunch and dinner. Fresh fruit is always available for a snack in between meals. And dinner includes a freshly baked dessert from the onsite bakery.

While older campers like to bring their own money, please limit the money they bring to camp. Gurim and Kfirim campers (ages 8-11) should not bring extra spending money to camp; however, you are encouraged to send along money to donate for tzedakah on Fridays (small change is sufficient).
Kolbo (Camp Store)
When you register your child/ren to camp, you have the option of adding money in your camper’s Kolbo account. Kolbo stocks camp essentials that your child needs to replace items forgotten at home like toothbrushes, lip balm and flip flops. Campers can buy Yavneh gear including hats, tee shirts, sweatshirts, etc. All Kolbo purchases are deducted from your child/ren’s Kolbo account. You can add more money to your child/ren’s Kolbo account online at your My Yavneh account. Any money left over in your camper’s Kolbo account will rollover into next year.
