I have observed that if you submit a formal request in ADVANCE,
to notifiy cooks or kitchen staff, or people buying the food,
MOST of the time, there is no problems with any kind of special
menus. If you just show up and complain that NO ONE did anything
to provide for YOUR own special needs, no one much likes it.
Many camp kitchens are not staffed by full time cooks that
even know what kosher meals involve. But if you give them
a list enough in advance, for ANY KIND of special meals, they
almost always are willing to try to help. BUT, on the other
hand, if you are dealing with a minimum kitchen crew that ONLY
knows how to make ONE MENU, you can still have problems.
BUT, I would say I have seen a majority of special menus resolved
with a little forsite, and a polite REQUEST. People don't like
DEMANDS! and COOKS never like poeple that complain AFTER they
have worked to provide the meal.
