OUR PROMISE

Our Food Service Staff is dedicated to providing and serving high quality, well balanced, and nutritious meals in a clean and safe environment.

As soon as you walk into the Dining Hall one of the first things you’ll notice is the array of flags representing alumni from all over the world. Each one of them has enjoyed something from our Food Service Program, whether it be a full two-week menu, or one of our world famous Hazen Cookies.

We prepare over 90,000 meals throughout the year. The food at Hazen comes in a large variety and with plenty of healthy options. We promote healthy eating by having a breakfast bar, a salad bar, and a fruit bowl for healthy snacking. We also offer our signature fresh infused waters, such as watermelon-basil and cucumber lemon, and a full self-serve coffee station available 24 hours daily.

OUR FOOD

We work hard to ensure that all of our campers and guests receive the most appealing and enjoyable meals served at the right temperature and in a timely manner. We prepare and serve our menu items fresh daily.  We have partnered with our Food Service purveyors in order to receive the highest quality products. Our Food Service Directors review our menu annually, and the two-week rotating menu ensures something for every taste.

Every morning at the breakfast bar you will find a combination:

Yogurt and granola
​Fresh fruit
Cottage cheese
Hard-boiled eggs
a variety of breakfast breads
   bagels
   muffins
   biscuits
   scones
Jelly
Cream cheese
Smart Balance Spread

A favorite option at lunch and dinner is our delicious and nutritious salad bar. Where you’ll find a selection of:

Fresh Greens
Tomatoes
Cucumbers
Carrots
Beans
Cheese
Cooked pasta
Sliced meats
Premade (in house) salads

​Each salad bar will have a variety of lite or oil/vinegar based dressings and nice selection of toppings

SUMMER CAMP

We eat Healthy at Hazen.  Campers appreciate the healthy options and tell us the food is terrific.  We serve, Family Style, on round tables so every camper in the cabin group is included in the conversation. Serving meals family style is intentional so our counselors are able to teach table manners, manage portion control, and encourage healthy eating and community. All campers and staff are encouraged to wash their hands before meals, and we also have hand sanitizer at each entrance.

Meal times are fun. There is always great energy in the Dining Hall, from the whole camp singing the song of the summer to passionate village cheers, this is what makes camp special.  Campers share waiter responsibilities and are eager for their turn to set the table, pick up the food and clear the dishes.  Dining at Hazen is a memorable experience and one of the great traditions of coming to camp.

We hear time and again from parents that their child is a picky eater, so we have a lot of experience in this area.  With that in mind, campers are encouraged to try a ‘No thank you’ helping and with the help of their counselor, village director and our food service staff, will find something good to eat.
