When children go away to summer camp, parents always have questions and concerns. They want their children to be safe, happy and healthy, so they ask the right questions and do their camp research before sending the youngsters off.

But when kids arrive at camp they often have only three questions, says Tia Pearse: Where is the bathroom? Where do I sleep? And, where do I eat?

“Some camps don’t understand how important it is to have good food,” says Pearse, co-director of Camp Tawingo. “But mealtime is our biggest program – it’s actually what the kids do most.”
