    • Does this stuff really matter??? • YES!!!! This is pretty important stuff. • Next time you go to Winacka or Whispering Oaks you’ll practically be an expert. 
    • How does the meal-time routine work? • The first thing that happens are the hoppers coming in to set up • Secondly, the adults come in before the girls, and spread out through the lodge • The third thing is all of the campers coming in and sitting at the tables • Next a greeting is sung • After that everyone eats • And last, but not least, is the clean-up
    • Table etiquette  Meals at camp are always served “family Style”. • Pass food around the table….not across • Remember that there are 8 people at each table. make sure everyone gets the same amount of food. • FEED YOUR HOPPER!!! Don’t forget about her! She needs food too.
    • • You can get seconds when the Rusty/Chewy sign is turned around so you can see their face.
    • Hopping • Hoppers are the people who get food for their table • Hoppers come in early to help set up the tables • Please, carry the food with two hands!!!
    • Just a note…. • When you are hopping it isn’t necessary for you to actually hop to the kitchen • Remember, you are not a bunny rabbit.
    • Whispering Oaks • The hopper will go up to the big window to get the food, carrying it with both hands • Hoppers must walk through the center aisle of the lodge to get there
    • Winacka • The food will be found at the second window. • There are red footsteps for you to follow. Please, follow them! • Once you get the food, keep following the footsteps. You should end up on the opposite side from which you came
    • Footprints? What footprints? Follow the It’s not that rusty hard….. you’ll footprints get it.  from the right side of the stage
    • This is the window at Winacka where you Windows get the food. the serving dishes also come back here. This is the window at Winacka that the racked dishes come back to.
    • More Windows! This is the window at Whispering Oaks that the racked dishes, mugs, and pitchers come back to. This is the window at Whispering Oaks where you get your food. The serving dishes also come back here.

    • DISHES Before taking your table’s dishes back, every person at the table needs to: • Separate the trash from the compost • Clean off their silverware, and • SCRAPE THEIR PLATE AND BOWL WITH THE RUBBER SCRAPER!!!
