Food Allergies

Individualized Attention to Food Allergies

Your experience here at Camp W*K is about having the best summer ever! Put your food allergy and dietary restrictions in a worry box and leave them there. Chef Tom, our resident culinary magician of 9 seasons, easily adjusts menus so everyone enjoys meal times. The Dining Hall is a place for bonding and connecting, not concerns about food!

In addition to being completely peanut, tree nut and sesame free, we are able to accommodate all food allergies. Vegans and Vegetarians also appreciate our menu options. Chef Tom uses only fresh ingredients, cooks and bakes from scratch, and ensures there is no cross-contact of food products.

Food Safety at W*K:


  • The entire camp is peanut, tree nut and sesame free, not just the Dining Hall
  • All staff are trained in epinephrine use
  • 4 Nursing staff members on site
  • 5-7 minute response time to Cape Cod Hospital


  • Kitchen staff are certified in food allergy awareness
  • For campers with additional allergies beyond nuts and sesame:
    *Dedicated prep area and storage space
    *Separate color coded cookware
    *Meals are individually plated, wrapped and labeled



“Sandy and Will Rubenstein’s commitment to an allergy-aware camp environment was a game-changer for us as parents of a child with allergies. Suddenly, Wil had an opportunity to enjoy the experience of being a kid in an environment that integrated him seamlessly – and most importantly, safely – with all of the other campers and activities without making him feel that he was different. We can’t thank Wingate*Kirkland enough for giving Wil an experience that simply was incredible on so many levels.” - Delane and Richard Moser
