24 hours to Celiac Camp

by | G+ Amy Leger

Emma’s pretty excited around here. She’s been doing her own laundry trying to get prepared for Gluten-Free Fun Camp: a camp where celiac kids can be themselves and have any foods they want. It’s a great time for the kids to explore all that is summer camp, without the risks of eating something she shouldn’t.

If you’ve ever wondered what makes a camp like this so necessary just ask my 10-year-old. At first her answers were brief: “I can eat whatever I want…” “Meet new people.”

Then I asked her—“What else?” Apparently I jogged her memory, because the answers then came pretty easily, “I like the games, horseback riding, the lake and beach. Oh…and the ‘sno-cone’ machines – you can have any flavor too and they’re all gluten-free.”

“I wonder which bunk I’m going to get?” “What should I bring to tie-dye?” “Is it okay if I bring Sammy my bear to sleep with?” “I think we need to buy me a rain coat” (which is accurate, she’s been rain coatless for some time). And just like that we’re in full-on camp preparation mode.

I am so thankful there are camps like these around the country. Just Google celiac and camp and you should be able to find a handful of them. Our family is just lucky we have one an hour’s drive from our house.

If you have a child with celiac disease—while it may be too late this year to sign up, you should consider one for next year. We love it!  Watch for a post next week which will include Emma’s review of camp!

Take a peek at the post I did last month if you would like more information on the camp here in Minnesota.
