Camp Food

The Alps Craft Cafe

Looking after our environment is paramount, and our food plays a huge part in this. Throughout our camps we provide our campers with nutritional, eco-sourced meals using local produce, including: vegetables, free range eggs, local Shinsyu chicken and locally grown organic goods. We avoid using additives, preservatives and MSG wherever possible.

We endeavour to support the local economy and community by using local businesses and restaurants. We also prepare meals in our own kitchen to ensure our campers’ food is fresh with minimal carbon footprint as possible.

Our Commitment To The Environment

  • We try not to use air conditioning in our offices or in our vehicles while driving.
  • We plant trees to replace air conditioners and work to improve ventilation. 
  • We do not consume unnecessary electricity.
  • We use compost.
  • Recycling is a big part of our company culture.

Our efforts may seem small, but small changes on a large scale can make huge changes on industry and on our environment. We share our ideology with our staff, and encourage them to be forward thinking towards their own environmental foot-print. We would like to think that our seasonal staff return to their home countries with a more open mind set and adjust their habits to protect our planet whenever possible.
