Food Service

We are proud of our food services at Carol Joy Holling. Meals are served buffet-style in our dining hall at the Sjogren Center. The menus are created by our culinary team with the interest of our guest groups in mind. Breakfast entrees such as egg dishes, breakfast potatoes, sausage & bacon, and a variety of sweet pastries. Fruit, yogurt, and a cereal bar are available at every breakfast meal. At lunchtime, the buffet includes main entrees, such as a taco bar, BBQ pork sandwiches, turkey salad croissants with accompaniments, a salad bar, a variety of homemade soups, and baked goods. Dinner is all about comfort foods, which may include pot roast, turkey, ham, or meatloaf.  Sides include potato dishes, steamed vegetables, a salad bar, and special desserts.

Three meals are included in all of our Swanson and Sjogren Retreat Center’s overnight packages. For day meetings and extended overnight stays, individual meals can be priced for you. We can also cater full meals or lunch boxes to you at different locations.  You may also decide to request a hamburger cookout for your group at various locations on camp. Pricing for these services can be made by calling Dana at 402-944-2544.

Standard meal times are:

Breakfast - 7:30 a.m.
Lunch - 12 noon
Dinner - 6 p.m.

We are very deliberate about accommodating special diets. Please make sure that you share those needs with us prior to your arrival. Should you have any concerns about the menu, feel free to contact our Director of Operations, Tara, at or 402-944-2544.
