Dietary Needs

We are happy to help accommodate your camper’s dietary needs as they experience an adventure of a lifetime at YMCA Camp Ernst.


We are able accommodate peanut/tree nut allergies, gluten allergies and intolerance, dairy intolerance, and vegetarian and vegan diets during the summer. While the staff work closely with families regarding accommodation of food allergies, please note that we are not a peanut-free or gluten-free facility and, thus, the possibility of exposure does still exist.

Some families like to send their camper with specially labeled foods for mealtime to accommodate dietary needs, and we are able to store those items in our walk-in fridge but must have prior arrangements made by completing the following form or calling our office.

We ask all campers with dietary needs and/or restrictions complete the form at least two weeks prior to the camper’s session or call us at the camp office at 859-586-6181 to discuss a plan.
