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, easily adjusts menus so everyone enjoys meal times. The Dining Hall is a place for bonding and connecting, not concerns about food—unless you want seconds!

In addition to being completely peanut, tree nut and sesame free, we easily accommodate gluten-free, dairy, wheat, soy, egg, and fish allergies. Vegans or Vegetarians also appreciate our menu options. Chef Tom uses only fresh ingredients, cooks and bakes from scratch, and ensures there is no cross-contamination of food products.

We partner with our families in ensuring that all food sent to Camp is ingredient-checked before being sent to the bunk. This includes food items made with peanut oil and/or produced in a factory that uses peanuts. The safety and well being of everyone at camp is our priority. In the event of any emergency, we are within five-to-seven minutes of the nearest hospital. Please click here for detailed information on our Epinephrine policy.

We recommend Divvies for sending baked goods and treats to Camp. Divvies products are baked in a dedicated facility where no peanuts, tree nuts, eggs or milk enter the doors. The ingredients that they use are certified allergen-free. Divvies is owned and operated by a W*K family!

“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
