Winter Camp Cooking Class

By | January 5th, 2015|

Hello all!! During Winter Camp this year our very own Chef Kimmie ran an awesome cooking class for all our Campers. Since S’Mores are a standard in any camping setting, Chef Kimmie took that concept and put a cool spin on it. S’Mores Ravioli! Now these are not your traditional ravioli… boiled in water and smothered in a pasta sauce. These are a delicious baked pastry that are assembled in the fashion of a traditional ravioli. Sort of like a Turnover… but Ravioli sounded a bit more fun!! S’Mores Ravioli recipe…  Makes 5 to 7 (depending on size) […]

Hello dear readers... I would have preferred to write this post in a more timely fashion but I would be remiss if I didn't post it at all. In the picture below is (most of) our 2014 Kitchen Staff. This summer our Food Service Staff were THE most highly skilled and trained team I have ever had the privilege to work with. From my Assistant, Chef Kimmie, who is a powerhouse in guiding the daily operations of the kitchen at Ockanickon & Stockwell... to Jess (not pictured) leading the team at Matolly, who graduated from the Burlington County Institute of [...]

A little Social Media change…

By | October 9th, 2014|

Hello everyone!! Facebook has been doing a little "house cleaning" and is cracking down on businesses that are still using personal Facebook pages for businesses. Since Camp was a very early adopter of using Facebook... and social media in general... one of our two Facebook pages is still currently a personal page... the other is a proper business page. Our original personal page was created well before Facebook invented the Business Pages and although we did create one of those too, we didn't want to lose what we had already started originally years before. It is inevitable that we will be [...]

Hello all... Our Fruit Tray competition has come to a conclusion here at Camp between the Ockanickon Kitchen Staff and the Matollionequay Kitchen Staff and the winner is... The Ockanickon Kitchen Staff's "Indian Chief" display!!!   The senior Kitchen Staff and I narrowed down the 5 daily trays last week to one finalist from each kitchen and let YOU pick the winner by "Liking" the photos on our Facebook page. I let the voting run from the initial posting on Saturday until midnight Tuesday and by a slim 136 to 117 count the stately Indian Chief won over the beautiful [...]

A little friendly competition in the Kitchen…

By | July 16th, 2014|

Hello all!! What started as some of our Kitchen Staff being a little creative and having fun with designs on our morning fruit tray for the campers, has now turned into a little friendly competition between the Ocky Kitchen Staff and the Matolly Kitchen Staff. Pictured below is an example of what I'm talking about... That is a fish made out of honeydew and cantaloupe melons with a dried cranberry for an eye. (This tray was from about a week ago and not in the contest.) So here are the rules and the way the contest will be judged... #1... [...]

10 years ago today…

By | July 12th, 2014|

Hello friends... I know it's been a while since I've written a blog post and I have no good excuse except sometimes life just gets in the way of extra little things that we all enjoy to do… and I truly do love writing and sharing experiences and stories with our Camp community here on our blog, on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook… or just a plain old face to face conversation around Camp. This opportunity to write a little something couldn't be missed though and I made sure I carved time out of my busy day to sit and share with [...]
