Meals

Our chefs take special care to ensure our meals are nutritious, tasty, and include lots of options to satisfy a range of food preferences. Family camp menus include cereals, eggs, breads, pasta, pizza, chicken, turkey, roast beef, sandwiches, soups, tacos, and plenty of salads, vegetables and fruits. Our kitchen provides vegetarian alternatives, and we take pride in the supplier relationships we have established with local growers and farm stands nearby in Vermont and New Hampshire. We do our best to accommodate dietary needs by not serving nuts, and by making vegetarian, gluten-free and dairy-free options.

Meals are served buffet-style for breakfast and lunch in our large dining hall. At August Family Camp, families may choose to eat on the porch, or on the lawn. Dinner is served family style in our dining hall with children’s games provided 20 minutes into the meal for our quick eaters. Adults over 21 years old may bring alcoholic beverages, a fridge is provided to store drinks during the week.

Staff

Hulbert staff are experienced counselors, bringing unparalleled energy, enthusiasm, and knowledge to our programs. Each staff member brings their own educational and professional expertise to their role at Hulbert, seamlessly adapting their approach to best suit the age and background of the program participants. Children four and over may participate fully in the daily program, with or without their parents. We are unable to provide supervision for children outside of scheduled activities and we ask that children under four ALWAYS be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
