What are your goals?
Our initial discussions will revolve around your specific goals. Some questions we will ask are;
- Is your camp trying to save money on food costs?
- Is your camp trying to improve the overall nutrition/quality of your food?
- Is your camp interested in expanding your menu to cater more heavily to individuals with certain food restrictions?
- Do you want to offer a greater variety of menu items and meal options?
Our executive team will work with your leadership to determine an appropriate food budget for your camp season. We can also develop customized daily menus for your camp, which include recipes for every meal, based on your existing budget.
Once we have determined the best menu and budget, we can perform all of the food purchasing using our close network of wholesale food distributors, ensuring that your camp can take advantage of our highly discounted food costs. Remember, our relationship with numerous camps and food distributors means that your camp saves money by using our bulk purchasing power.
Inspection of your Kitchen Facilities
If you choose to have our team fly to your location, we will spend some time inspecting your current kitchen and dining facilities. This will help us determine how much food can be prepared properly for each meal. We will review the current status of your cookware, ovens, stoves, freezers and refrigerators, dishwashers, sinks, and dry storage areas. We will also take inventory of your silverware, cutlery, plates, bowls, serving utensils, cups, drink dispensers, food warming stations, etc. We will test all cooking and food storage tools to ensure everything is in good working order.
Hiring/Screening of Kitchen Staff
CampFood.org has over 20 years’ experience hiring food service professionals for camps just like yours. Based on our inspection of your camp’s Kitchen and Dining Facilities, along with our discussions about menus and required food quantities, we will determine how many chefs/cooks/servers/managers your camp will require. We can quickly provide our own staff to service your camp and take care of everything for you. However, if you would like, we can also recruit new staff for your camp, including interviewing, background screening, training etc. We can also manage your new staff during your camp season.
