  • Whoever will be using the kitchen must provide proof of ServSafe Food Safety and Handling Training.  Additionally, if a commercial caterer is brought in, they must provide a copy of their retail food service license.
  • Decorating, set-up, and tear-down of the Camp Chapel and Dining Pavilion are the responsibility of those renting the space.  Camp Mack is generally open to be decorated however the renter wishes.  The large American Flag and “Welcome to Camp Mack” sign in the Dining Pavilion may not be removed, however, they may be covered.
  • Rental of the Camp Chapel and Dining Pavilion/Kitchen do not constitute rental of the entire property.  As such, campsites and cabins may be rented to Scouts or other groups for weekend campouts.  Camp Mack makes sure to inform such groups of special events taking place in camp and asks that they respect those events.
