My child is a picky eater, but I want the Meal Plan. What should I do?

Camp Moorings Meal Plan publishes menus which outline each meal offered during the camp's duration.  If you recognize that most of the meals are foods your child will eat, you can sign on to the meal plan and substitute a packed lunch on days you believe your child may not take a meal.

FYI: Parents have discovered that their "picky eaters" eat every menu offering and return on some occasions for "seconds"! 🙂
