We are excited to announce that Camp Achva will be partnering with Chef Joe Catering this summer to provide Camp lunches for purchase! Chef Joe Catering caters Gesher Jewish Day School's lunches year-round, and is excited to be able to offer their services during Camp as well. Attached you can find the lunch menu for the summer. Each meal comes with a main course, a fruit and vegetable, and dessert. Lunch is certified Kosher, dairy, nut-free, and will arrive individually boxed with your child's name on it to their group every day.
Lunches are an additional $160 per session, $320 for the full summer. Purchasing lunch is only available by session or full summer. All lunches for Session 1 must be paid for by June 1, 2021 and all lunches for Session 2 must be paid for by July 1, 2021.
