Food and Menu Information

For most DAY TRIP programs, students are asked to provide their own bagged lunch.  College Settlement will provide water, and can always provide a lunch for students who forget theirs (or eat it on the way to school, that morning!)   Schools attending our programs on a full EITC Scholarship can request to have lunch provided.  See the menu below for the PICNIC LUNCH.


For Overnight program groups (1 night and 2 night)  all meals except the first bagged lunch are included in the program fee.   Our food prepared on site and is designed to be kid friendly, nutritious and is served “family style” at round tables. *pending current COVID CDC guidelines

FOOD RESTRICTIONS   We take food allergies very seriously and encourage parents of children with life-threatening food allergies to contact us directly at (215) 542-7974. Due to the large number of food restrictions and allergies, we can easily accommodate GLUTEN FREE or VEGETARIAN DIETS with prior notice.  We MAY  have to ask that students with multiple severe allergies bring their own substituted food items with which we will be happy to prepare for them.  Our Food Services Manager can discuss specific food ingredients with parents if needed. Please call the camp office at (215) 542 7974 to connect with  our Food Service Manager.

The Dining Hall – Davies Hall is a modern winterized dining area and kitchen that can accommodate up to 147 people (main room) and a total of 179 people (when also using the porch).   Meals are traditionally served family style at round tables or picnic style outdoors under one of our covered pavilions or in our shady maple picnic grove.  

We typically have 7 or 8 students and 1 adult at every table.  We suggest that an adult sit at each table and supervise during meals. After each meal the dining hall will be cleaned by table groups on a rotating basis.          

We can provide a “teacher table“ request  however we have found that students thoroughly enjoy the novelty of having teachers at their table – plus the meals run more smoothly with this added supervision!
