“I think a lot of families are really focused on healthy living at home, and they are looking for camps that reflect those values in the camp,” said Isaac Mamaysky, who serves as the camp’s director with his wife, Lisa.

At Camp Zeke, the canteen offers a smoothie bar and trail mix instead of the traditional candy and chips. Campers can participate in a variety of exercise programs, such as yoga, martial arts, dance and climbing. And while kids still eat traditional camp offerings, such as pizza and chicken wings, they are made in healthy ways.

“We serve many of the things that you would find in other camps, it’s just they don’t come out of a box, they’re not frozen, and we’re making them from scratch and we’re making them in the healthiest possible way,” Mamaysky said.

Camp Zeke also caters to kids with food restrictions and has a separate chef dedicated to their needs.
