I sometimes get enquiries about gluten free summer camps, so I’m delighted to be able to pass this on…
Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bakery is awarding 10 American children a scholarship to go to an American gluten-free summer camp in Georgia or Minnesota. New this year, they will also award 10 children in Canada the chance to attend a gluten-free summer camp.
It’s a Facebook competition: between Feb 18 and March 18, 2014, parents with eligible children ages 8-17, can enter the contest by ‘liking’ Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bakery on Facebook and helping their child submit a 100-word statement on what makes him or her special. (Children under 13 aren’t supposed to have Facebook accounts, which is why its for parents to enter).
Sounds like fun, doesn’t it? Summer camps aren’t big here in the UK in the same way, but I do know what it is like to send a gluten free child out on their own, and I believe it’s great independence training. We don’t know the Rudi’s brand at all, but this is a great initiative.
I’ve written a book summarising what we’ve learnt over 20 years of dealing with the gluten free diet, and it might be just what you’re looking for. It packs the lessons we’ve learned into what I hope is a helpful and straightforward guidebook. It’s available on Amazon, as a paperback or for your Kindle…
