Food

Mealtimes are important at Mt. Gilead Camp and they always start with a song and prayer. Campers enter the Dining hall to a family style meal with the food already waiting for them at their cabin’s table. Each counselor sits with their cabin as they eat. Dessert is served for both lunch and dinner.

Food is cooked fresh and served daily with nutrition in mind. At Mt. Gilead, the health and safety of our campers is a number one priority. Every meal comes with something children and teens love to eat with healthy options to create a well-balanced meal.

At the end of each meal songs are sung as everyone helps clean up. Campers especially enjoy this and it’s one of the many memories that campers remember for years to come. It can be a little loud at times as they all join in singing and laughing!
Every Monday night each cabin has a cookout where they cook their own supper over a real campfire and then enjoy s’mores for dessert.  On Wednesday nights campers can choose to hike to the top of Mt. Pocono and enjoy a picnic supper along with a beautiful view. Friday is Pizza in the Pavilion day where everyone gathers for a pizza and ice cream lunch at the outside pavilion! Our kitchen staff are more than willing to accommodate camper’s dietary restrictions and food allergies. Please contact us (before registering) if your camper has a severe food allergy so we can discuss the options available. Mt. Gilead uses ServSafe certified individuals to supervise our kitchen’s year-round operations and cleanliness and the camp kitchen and dining hall is inspected and granted a license to operate by the Pennsylvania Department of Health.
