Tapawingo campers enjoy lunchtime in the Dining Hall

As our former director Jane always said, “We are a family, so we eat together.” Tapawingo’s size is intentional for many reasons, but particularly because it allows every camper to comfortably sit in the Dining Hall together for meals. We provide delicious family-style meals and our campers rotate tables every few days to allow them to get to know everyone in the Tapawingo community. In the Tap Dining Hall, there are table games, trivia and a song for everything!

  • We provide balanced meals with alternative options whether that be for preference or for allergies or health decisions.
  • In addition to the meal at breakfast there is yogurt, cereal and mounds of fresh berries. At lunch and dinner there is an extensive salad bar.
  • We offer meals that are vegetarian, vegan, dairy free and gluten free. We are a nut free facility.
“There’s something about Tapawingo that makes it so special. It’s the community, bringing together all of these people from so many different walks of life, from all over the world. It’s unlike anything else, you just can’t recreate it.”
