Food & Nutrition

Dining at the International Cafe

International Gymnastics Camp is a great place for campers to learn and grow and with how much gymnastics training, recreation, and on the go fun campers participate in it is important to eat full nutritious meals while at camp. Under the direction of our chefs, campers enjoy meals buffet style at the International Cafe.

IGC’s breakfast buffet includes fresh fruit, yogurt, oatmeal, bagels, eggs, meats, potatoes, french toast/pancakes/waffles, a variety of cold cereals, as well as milk, juice, and hot chocolate.

For lunch and dinner, our chefs prepare a full course hot buffet menu as well as soup, a full salad bar, a build-your-own-wrap bar, and fresh fruit.

IGC’s daily varied menu always includes vegetarian choices. In order to accommodate those with nut allergies, we do not use any nut products on campus.¬†

Special Diets At IGC

At IGC we are lucky to have a delicious and nutritious buffet-style breakfast, lunch and dinner, daily. There are indeed ample choices at our 20ft salad/wrap bar and many hot food options at each meal. If your camper has any allergies that require an epi-pen, i.e., egg, milk, celiac, gluten-free, kosher or any other dietary sensitives that for health, safety or religious needs require special preparation, our kitchen cannot accommodate these sensitives and to reiterate, our food service area is a buffet.

At IGC we have strived for years to accommodate many different dietary requirements and we find ourselves saddened that due to the remarkable increase of these vast dietary requirements we are no longer able to continue this philosophy. For those with nut allergies, we do our best to provide a nut sensitive environment. Furthermore, we do not serve shellfish.

If your camper is unable to eat at our buffet, to ensure good safety, prevent cross-contamination and make a reasonable accommodation, for your camper’s meals we require sealed individual microwavable meals. In addition, you may provide dietary specialty, nut free snacks for medical reasons that will be stored in the Health Center.

For campers needing to bring their own meals that are essential to their health & safety, please review our clear guidelines in our Parent/Camper Guide. Please note, meals that do not follow the guidelines, will not be accepted and IGC will provide sealed meals for your camper at an additional cost.
