All food provided by NEOC is nut free!
All food brought from home by staff and campers is required to be 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!
