Food at Yavneh/Kashruth

Campers sit with friends at one of forty large tables in our big, bright dining room. We always have cereals, bagels, yogurt, fresh fruit, juices and cottage cheese for breakfast, and depending on the day, you can also have scrambled eggs, pancakes, french toast, muffins and more. For lunch and dinner we serve pizza, lasagna, grilled cheese, fish filets, ravioli. Meat meals include: hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken, turkey, steak, with seconds available. If you like homemade cookies, cakes, brownies, and apple pies - then you'll love our desserts too. Fresh fruit is available throughout the day for snacking.

Our Salad Bar has lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, tuna salad, eggs - over 20 items each day. Everyone is invited to partake in the Pasta Bar too. If you're vegetarian, then go to the Veggie Bar. Our soup bar continues to be a hit.

For Parents

The question we most often hear from parents of new campers is, "What if my child doesn't like the food?" The answer is, "Tell us". In addition to the entree of every lunch and dinner, there are always many alternatives at the salad bar and pasta bar.

Nutritionally sound foods are the backbone of each menu. We use low-fat, high protein ingredients and have options available for special needs diets. Vegetarians enjoy the daily veggie bar.


Camp Yavneh is strictly Kosher, overseen by our full time Mashgiach (Kosher Supervisor). Our kitchen staff is extensively trained on Kashruth and Food Safety.
