How exciting is that!
If only we weren’t based in the UK … I have vivid memories of doing summer camp in New Hampshire for a few years when I was younger (a lot younger! we’re talking over 35 years ago, when Windsor Mountain was called Interlocken). I remember hiding with a book in the woods at rest time – the smell of hot pine trees and the prickle of the needles …
My British children are now big enough to go away alone – here in the UK – to the same sort of thing, though we don’t have any gluten free options, and they only go for a week at a time. Two years ago just one went to a castle in Northumberland; last year I sent two together to an Arts week in a manor house in Norfolk; this year it will be two again – but a different two! – one to Spy School in Lincolnshire, and one to Norfolk. On each occasion a box of gluten free foods will go with my coeliac camper – after several calls to the camp directors to check it all out!
This camp will be based in Livermore California, from August 20-23, and is sponsored by Celiac Disease Foundation, Team GlutenFreeT,Celiac Sprue Research Foundation and Taylor Family Foundation. Check it out – it’s free!
Fabulous – fun activities and no worries about the catering. There are other camps too … Why not contact them now?

[edit: forgot to say – I picked this up via Erin at Gluten-Free Fun – thanks Erin!]
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…
