Sponsored Post: Sherwood Park Celiac Support Group partners with Camp

This announcement is from the Sherwood Park Celiac Support Group:

The Sherwood Park Celiac Support Group has partnered with the Allergy Asthma Information Association (AAIA) and YWCA YoWoChAs Outdoor Education Center to provide an opportunity for children with Celiac disease to attend summer camp.  The camp is open to children 6 - 15 years of age and will be held at the YWCA YoWoChAs Outdoor Education Center (80 km west of Edmonton, AB) from July 23 to 27, 2012.  The Celiac campers will participate in all camp activities, but the meal and snack menu has been modified to be gluten-free.

The Food Allergy and Celiac Summer Camp will provide children and teens with celiac disease the chance to participate in a traditional summer camp.  Children with Celiac disease won't have to worry about the food being safe for them to eat or if it will make them sick.  They can just enjoy going to camp and being kids.

For questions regarding the gluten-free menu, please contact Cathy at spceliacs@gmail.com or (780) 467-6170. Contact YWCA YoWoChAs Outdoor Education Centre at (780) 892-2660 or yowochas@ywcaofedmonton.org for any other questions.

Registration begins on February 21, 2012 and runs until the end of June, I believe.  YWCA YoWoChAs Outdoor Education Centre handles the registration.  Only 20 spots available for children with Celiac Disease.

  4. Did they discussed about childhood nutrition? I want to send my daughter to a Summer Camp like that because she has celiac disease and I know that she will enjoy those activities in the camp site.

  5. The school should not only guide their students on what are learning but also on how they maintain their overall health condition. That means, the school should also teach the students on what are the nutritious foods for them to eat.
