Food Allergies

Both our Food Service Directors have Food Allergy Awareness certifications and our Food Service staff is also trained to prepare allergy meals in a safe, responsible manner.

We try to accommodate guests with food allergies & food sensitivities to the best of our abilities. We will always accommodate our guests with life-threatening allergies to the eight major allergenic foods and will try our best to accommodate food sensitivities. However, guests with these sensitivities must understand that this is not always possible; All BCCYMCA guests & staff have the opportunity to complete a food allergy questionnaire, which will be referred to during the menu planning process.

Please note that BCCYMCA is not a peanut-free facility.

For parents of participants with serious food allergies: We completely understand your concern when sending your children away to camp. If you are in any way uncomfortable with our staff preparing your children's meals and would prefer to send prepared meals (or supplemental food) for your children's consumption, please contact the relevant Food Service Director, to discuss and make special arrangements.

Meal Levels and Upgrades

Every program package (weddings excluded) includes either Two Star Meals or Three Star Meals - breakfast, lunch and dinner. If your group would like to add items to your meal, create more choices or elaborate meals generating a variety of options for your group, or choose the menu and have specific needs or desires, you can opt for a meal upgrade.

Prices vary, but typical options are:

  • $10 per person, per meal for a Four Star Meal Upgrade
  • $20 per person, per meal for a Five Star Meal Upgrade.
