Can you imagine how difficult it would be to attend summer camp as a child with celiac disease? Even if a camp was willing to “accommodate” special diets, your child would likely end up spending most of their time worrying about food rather then letting loose with all of the other kids. Lucky for kids (and parents) in the bay area, Camp Celiac at Camp Arroyo is a 1-2 week summer program created specifically for children with celiac disease (yes, you have to have celiac to attend). The camp serves exclusively gluten free food for every meal, including gf s’mores around the campfire. Set in the hills of Lafayette, Camp Celiac is home to a massive swimming pool and challenge coarse, along with activities like boating, zip lining, a rock wall, hiking, arts and crafts and sports.  All of this for a minimal registration fee of $25. The camp is run by the incredibly generous Taylor Foundation who exists in part from your donations. Find information about registration and other FAQ’s on their website- but hurry! Space is limited.
