in Gluten-Free Community Calendar

  • No permission to add events


Join us as we experience one of the worlds greatest natural happenings - the
Mass Migration across the Serengeti. You have seen it on Animal Kingdom on
TV, but to see it and be in the middle of it for real - as we have done on one
of our previous Safaris - it is a surreal experience never to be forgotten.

We'll see Africa's "Big 5" as we safari over the Serengeti and the Masai Mara in
our pop-top safari vans with experienced trackers.

We'll stay in deluxe accommodations and, of course, all gluten-free meals each

Even though this is our 6th Safari in Africa each of them were unique and
unforgettable. Each time you go out on Safari you have no idea what you'll
see and that make the journey worth it - it is truly an adventure. It never gets
old !

Check out the complete itinerary and all the other details including costs:


There are only a limited number of reservations available, so make yours as
soon as you can - so that you can check it off of your Bucket list. If you have
any questions just give us a call at 410-939-3218.

----- Kid's Gluten Free Support Camp - Bloomington, MN

We still have room for more Gluten Detectives at our Third Annual Gluten Detective Camp. This year, our Gluten Detectives will sail into new adventures with other children leading a gluten free life. Our voyage starts on day one as we introduce our shipmates and start our day with music from Captain Rich! We will then "set sail" for a Polynesian adventure with crafts, activities and mental health activities based in a Hawaiian theme. Day two will find our ship headed for "Mexico" where our learning adventures will take place in the protective setting of our Bloomington campus, but our imaginations will soar to the sandy beaches and turquoise waters of Mexico. On Day three our ship will head home to Minnesota, where we will snack on gluten free s'mores, engage in fun, outdoor team games, and celebrate with music the end of our wonderful voyage!

At Gluten Detective camp, not only do we provide children with a worry-free environment and safe food, we also teach them valuable coping skills to lead what can be a restrictive, and isolating lifestyle. Campers come from all over the Midwest to unite at this innovative and fun camp, where area chefs visit to teach children cooking lessons, musicians lead the activities with live music, and gluten free teens and adult professionals lead the kids through a variety of activities, using theater and crafts. Each day includes plenty of outdoor activity, as well. Your child will leave GD camp invigorated and empowered! Come sail away with us on our Gluten Detective 2013 Voyage! You can watch a clip from last year's camp here.

----- Livermore, CA, Camp Celiac - Session 1

The Seventh Year of Camp Celiac!
At 138-acre Camp Arroyo in the foothills of Livermore, CA, Camp Celiac campers, counselors, and junior counselors eat delicious gluten-free food and enjoy traditional camp activities such as a ropes course, rock climbing, zip-lining, boating, swimming, archery, arts and crafts, skit night, and outdoor sports. Three meals a day without having to ask if any of the foods are gluten-free is life changing for many campers and staff!

Session 1 July 23-27 Tuesday-Saturday (staff arrives Monday, July 22)

Vendor Fair for both sessions to attend: Saturday, July 27th

Session 2 July 27-31 Saturday-Wednesday

Who Attends?
Camp Celiac is for children ages 9-16 years. Campers ages 16-17 entering 10th grade or lower may choose to register as a junior counselor or camper. Campers age 16-17 who are entering 11th grade or higher must register as a junior counselor.

Registration for this summer's camp begins February 1! All campers from Northern California who register between February 1st and February 14th will be given equal priority if all four registration steps are completed by February 14 (and received if paying by mail); i.e. there is no advantage to registering on February 1st rather than February 14th. After February 14th, available space will be allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis after all four registration steps are completed (and received if paying by mail). Please see the www.celiaccamp.com for further details and registration information.

Adult Volunteers Needed
Camp Celiac would not be possible without our wonderful adult volunteer counselors (ages 18 or older by the date of Camp). If you (or someone you know) would like to make camp a reality for our kids and enjoy a week of delicious gluten-free cooking in a beautiful setting, please consider volunteering. As we are limited in the number of kids we can serve based on the number of volunteers we recruit, please register as soon as possible. In particular, we are always in need of male counselors for the boys' groups.

The Taylor Family Foundation
The Celiac Community Foundation of Northern California administers Camp Celiac at Camp Arroyo in Livermore, CA, thanks to the generosity of our partner, The Taylor Family Foundation. Learn more about the heartwarming, amazing work of this extraordinary foundation on its website.

Donations Welcome
While we charge campers only $25 to attend, we rely on community donations to pay for much of our camp programming including archery, arts and crafts, medical supplies, a dance with a DJ, sports equipment, board games, inflatable obstacle course, etc. Whether or not you have a child attending, please consider making a tax deductible donation to support Camp Celiac at Camp Arroyo.

Very special thanks to the Corley family -- Jacqueline, Doug, Nathaniel and Morgan -- for organizing the camp, creating the website and volunteering every year.
