Under the direction of Gervais Hollowell, our hard-working kitchen crew makes everything we serve (no pre-packaged “heat and eat” at Greystone!). Every day we bake bread and build tasty meals. We do our best to see that even the most picky eater always leaves the table fully satisfied and talking about the food.
For the summer of 2021, we will be enjoying our brand new Dining Fort for eating! This HUGE new building will be able to accommodate all of our campers at one time so that we can eat together as a whole camp community, properly spaced, outside, and under a roof.
Our summer menu is fresh every week. Since it’s rare to eat the same meal twice in a session, we encourage the girls to try new foods, such as grits or salmon. Breakfast includes an enormous fruit bar with hot oatmeal and hard-boiled eggs, which at lunch turns into a salad bar with edamame, tofu, and an array of fresh vegetables. We make sure to offer allergen-free and vegetarian options. Lunch and dinner always end with a fantastic dessert, such as Oreo pie, blackberry cobbler, or chocolate chip cookies.

At Greystone, we love eating our meals family-style. Campers sit at a table with a counselor, who serves the food and leads the conversation as everyone enjoys the meal together. Campers switch tables each week, allowing them to meet new friends of all ages at mealtime. Some of the best camp friends are made over great food at your table each week!
While we eat most of our meals family style, we also enjoy picnics throughout the summer. We pair up many of our picnics with bigger camp events like Carnival and Corn Roast. We also enjoy camp-favorite picnics such as Taco in Bag.
There is always something for even the pickiest eaters! At breakfast, we always have fruit, berries, oatmeal, yogurt, granola, and basic cereals available. At lunch and dinner, everyone loves to eat a slice or two of homemade bread, as well as something from our huge salad bar. Most meals include hummus, hard-boiled eggs, several types of dressing, cottage cheese, soy butter, edamame, and some warm vegetarian options.
It is important for us to know of any food allergies your daughter may have. Our kitchen has several years of experience preparing allergen-free food and are eager to serve your camper! Our first step is maintaining a nut-free camp. We do not have nuts or use any nut products in our cooking at Greystone. There is more information on the website about how we take care of campers with food allergies and special dietary restrictions.
