Part of the “camp” experience is cooking meals together. We have put together a menu for this retreat with unique themes for lunches and dinners. You can find themes here.
If you are the meal coordinator, you will be responsible for facilitating the meals. This means understanding ahead of time how meals are prepared, how the kitchen is organized, what the meal prep schedule is and where to find things. We recommend you assign volunteers to help prep for each meal. You can find the full menu and directions here.
- Meal Prep: Meal prep instructions will be in a binder in the kitchen at Carrville. Meal ingredients will be posted on the glass fridges in the kitchen and organized by meal.
- Water: Everyone is encouraged to use the Compass water bottle provided to them or their own reusable water bottle. They can fill up their water bottles with purified water from the spigot in the kitchen (it is labeled).
- Dishes: As leaders, you can decide to use the regular dishes or paper products for meals, or a combination of both. Paper products can be found in the hallway by the kitchen.
- Clean-Up: Assign different groups to meal prep and clean up. We included a sign-up spot on the large agenda in the kitchen area. You can volunteer people or ask them to sign up themselves.
