  1. Vegetarian meals at camp are possible. Many vegetarian meat alternatives can be made in a similar manner as meat. I have worked many years at camps that serve all vegetarian food, and kids that are meat eaters come and some of them don’t even realize that they are not eating meat.

    Good meals include:
    Mac n cheese, tacos, burritos, taco salad, pasta with maranara or alfredo, cheese and refried bean enchiladas, hoaggie sandwiches

    Breakfast can include:
    Eggs and hash browns, burritos, biscuits with a white (no meat) gravy (you can add hard boild eggs too, or veggie sausage crumbles)

    Check around for a local Morning Star Farms distributer or Loma Linda or Worthington Food Products for vegetarian meat alternatives.
