Our highly skilled professional cooks not only prepare three nutritious and delicious meals a day for nearly 300 children and adults. They also work closely with our farmers to incorporate fresh produce from the gardens into their daily menus and oversee staffs of young assistants, most of whom are former Treetops campers working their way toward becoming Treetops counselors.
