There's No Mystery Meat in our Kitchen
When you think of camp food, I am a sure hot dog and fries and other mediocre food come to mind – not at Lovell Camps!
Lovell Camps is fortunate to have an amazing kitchen team, led by our head chef Geoff – aka “Geoff the Chef”. We are proud of all the hard work and dedication that goes into running the kitchen so smoothly. We are keen to have Mr. Joshua join us this winter, as our Kitchen Assistant.
“Even though the kitchen comes under enormous pressure at times, we’re passionate about what we do,” say Geoff.
If you have attended a Lovell Camps program in the past few seasons, you will remember Geoff. He is a tall, friendly Australian who loves to chat. He will go out of his way to make you feel warmly welcomed and ensure the food exceeds your expectations. “Although chefs in general are notorious for being loud and aggressive at times, I assure you that I am friendly and approachable and willing to answer any questions you may have.”
When planning menus, Geoff tries to find healthy alternative options for the children to enjoy, as well as the adults. “I believe the best food is fresh and sourced locally where possible. We at the Lovell Camp kitchen strive for excellence. We aim to prepare meals that are hearty, healthy and nourishing but at the same time are fun and delicious.”
Attached are two of the most loved recipes from the summer season. Thank you Geoff for sharing your secrets!
You’re Never too Old to Come to Camp!
Think your child is too old to attend camp? Think again! Our Leadership Training program is specially designed for 16 – 18 year olds to gain confidence and leadership experience while still enjoying the atmosphere of summer camp! Participants will engage in seminars and workshops about professionalism, working with children, program planning, conflict resolution and leadership styles. They will gain experience by shadowing mentor counsellors through various programs, such as language lessons, swim instruction and specialty interest group programs. Participants will be able to explore the local areas and cultural events for added enjoyment while in Switzerland. Participants will walk away from this 4-week program with more self-confidence and independence, added job experience and memories to last a lifetime!
