***Food items containing nuts are not served during camp.  However, we cannot guarantee a nut-free environment.  Camp kids often bring their own lunch items containing nuts, and nuts are a regular part of our animal diets.  Please disclose all participant food allergies during registration.  To discuss concerns or request special accommodations, please contact or call 515-974-2556.
