DMFTC meals are all about fueling an active, healthy lifestyle, not losing weight. Buffet-style, hearty meals are served three times a day in the Prude Ranch dining hall. Meals provide plenty of carbohydrates and calories to meet active campers' physical demands.
The DMFTC Food Manager and Prude Ranch cooking staff coordinate meal planning and food preparation with an emphasis on variety, balance, freshness, quality, and taste. Most meals include an extensive salad bar and vegetarian options.
Campers with specific dietary restrictions (vegan, gluten-free, diabetic, and so forth) should plan to supplement meals accordingly. All campers should bring their own favorite snack items and beverages. Note that, as all lodging options do not include refrigerators, campers are welcome to bring ice chests (there is limited ice available for campers' use at Prude Ranch;ice can be purchased in Ft. Davis at Porter's Grocery.)
To keep campers hydrated and fueled, water and energy drinks are available during workouts throughout the day. Campers who are away from camp for sponsored activities, such as all-day hikers and Scenic Loop cyclists, will be provided materials to pack a basic sack lunch. When DMFTC holds its swim outing to Balmorhea State Park, the camp arranges for campers to enjoy a picnic lunch at this beautiful natural pool.
