Kitchen staff will arrive at work earlier than most staff in order to prepare for breakfast. Depending on the dish being served, the staff will either eat before or after each meal.

Each member supports the other and takes pride in being flexible with whatever responsibility they are tasked with on a given day. As a result, each kitchen becomes a cohesive unit over the course of the summer and continuously improves their efficiency. Lead by the kitchen manager and the cook, the kitchen staff form the backbone of camp in what has been called the most important program center.
