A selection of foods is offered at every meal. All sites accommodate vegetarian diets, many offer gluten-free options, and most can provide commercial frozen kosher meals for an added charge. If availability of a particular meal plan will determine your choice of sites, please contact ctyinfo@jhu.edu or call 410-735-6277 for more information prior to submitting your application. If you have further questions about special diets at a specific site, contact your site’s program manager after receiving your student site information packet. This packet is available to families via MyCTY after their student has been assigned to a CTY summer course. 


Food allergies 

If your child is registered for a CTY Summer Programs course and needs special dietary arrangements due to severe food allergies or other medical issues, please note this when you complete the medical form, and contact the site program manager as soon as possible after receiving your site information packet. The packet includes site-specific information for families and is available via MyCTY after their student has been assigned to a CTY summer course.


If residential or other accommodations are needed in addition to safe meal choices, please contact 410-735-6215 or cty-disabilities@jhu.edu by May 15.
