King Hall does not cater to any specific diet at the Naval Academy as many food allergies or required special diets are disqualifications for naval service; this policy remains the same for our summer campers, so allergies to common foods or a required special diet (vegetarian, gluten-free) may be a disqualifying condition for attending our camps.
Peanut oil is not utilized in the on-site food preparation process, but some foods are prepared at an off-site warehouse which may have used it. Therefore, we cannot guarantee peanut allergy accommodations in King Hall nor are we able to provide gluten-free or other special diet meals to summer campers.
If you have a food allergy or dietary requirement, please make sure to contact our staff by email prior to completing your application and payment as we are unable to refund credit card fees and we want to make sure your camper will be able to safely and adequately nourish herself while at camp.
Campers will dine in King Hall, the dining facility for the Brigade of Midshipmen, which can seat over 4,400 people at one time. The staff in the Academy’s Midshipmen Food Service Division plan, prepare, and serve more than 13,500 meals per day which provides campers a great opportunity to experience how Midshipmen eat.
Below is a sample menu of what to expect at camp.
