Eating at summer camps is an important part of the experience our children will enjoy. In fact, the camps are an excellent opportunity for children and adolescents to have their first experiences away from the family circle.
This means that they spend part of their vacations doing many activities in direct contact with nature, as well as making new friends.
This is why more and more children of all ages are choosing to attend and participate in summer camps during their school vacations. They know that the experiences at these camps will be unique and unforgettable.
Food is an important factor when choosing a camp.
There are many factors to consider when selecting a summer camp. One of the most important is the type of food that the participants will eat during their stay at the camp. Eating in summer camps is a differential factor to consider, since a correct diet guarantees a good experience.
Certainly, the food at the summer camp is one of the fundamental bases of it. That is why it has to be treated very carefully, and it requires a wide experience in the sector for its correct execution.
On the other hand, since the activities carried out in these camps involve a significant energy expenditure, the food provided must be suitable to compensate for it. It has to be appropriate to the physical activity that the campers will perform during their stay.
For all these reasons, it is normal for many parents to consider the food factor very carefully when it comes to finding out about a summer camp for their children.
Natuaventura’s recommendation to select a camp.
At Natuaventura Ocio y Tiempo Libre we know how important a proper nutrition is for the development of children. That is why, we offer some important tips to consider when selecting a camp that guarantees adequate nutrition for your child.
Most of the time, the type of food at the summer camp is linked to the tasks of the coordination team. Basically, most camps usually use their own cooking equipment, which guarantees the preparation of homemade dishes, on a daily and fresh basis. While in other summer camps it may be common to find menus offered by catering services, all Natuaventura Ocio y Tiempo Libre camps have their own cooking equipment.
The experience of many years of organizing and coordinating summer camps has shown us that having our own kitchen equipment helps us to maintain a greater and better control over the food. This way, we can guarantee from the very first moment that the food consumed by the children is appropriate to their age and to the busy schedule of the camp activities.
The amount of daily meals.
Another important element to consider regarding food at summer camps is the number of meals that are eaten daily. The most appropriate and usual is to have four meals a day: breakfast, lunch, afternoon snack and dinner. This organization of meals allows us to gain energy in a constant way, as well as to pause for a moment between activities. What better time than the snack, which is a break during an intense physical activity, and also provides the energy needed to finish a full day?
Therefore, being sure that the camp we are interested in satisfies these two fundamental requirements is a way of guaranteeing that our child will enjoy a camp with the best possible nutrition. These two characteristics are elements that Natuaventura Ocio y Tiempo Libre camps fulfill from the very beginning.
