Ooh, Free Gluten Free Summer Camp

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!]
