All food provided by NEOC is peanut and tree nut-free!
All food brought by staff and campers is required to be peanut and tree nut-free. Soy butter and sunflower butter are allowed. If you pack a lunch containing soy butter or sunflower butter, please label the item(s) so that counselors can easily identify the food.
NEOC counselors engage campers in a daily, lunchtime safety check to review all packed lunch items. If a camper has peanuts or tree nuts, or items manufactured in a facility that also processes peanuts or tree nuts, in their lunch, the item will be removed and an equivalent replacement will be provided. For example, a side might be replaced by a piece of fruit and an entrée with sunbutter with crackers. Parents will be notified about the incident and a $20.00 fee will be applied to the family's account for the first instance. Any subsequent incidents will result in a $50.00 fee.

We ask that all camp families please respect this safety concern. Thank you for your support and cooperation!
