    We are pleased to announce that Camp Celiac will return in July 2017 for our 11th year of gluten-free camp. Once again, we will have two three-night sessions for campers ages 9 to 15: Sunday, July 16 - Tuesday, July 19 Tuesday, July 19 - Saturday, July 22 Registration: Registration for campers, counselors and junior counselors will open on February 1, 2017, on the Camp Celiac website, Counselors and junior counselors are expected to commit for the full six nights of camp. We will send a reminder in January before registration begins. If this email was forwarded to you, subscribe to our newsletter from our website to receive the reminder: Junior counselor policy: Beginning this year we are requiring junior counselors to have taken one year off between attending as a camper and serving as a junior counselor. Most other camps offered by The Taylor Family Foundation have this policy and we believe it is appropriate for Camp Celiac. Because we always have more junior counselor applicants than space, we give priority to those applicants entering 12th grade; thus, in practice, applicants entering 11th grade have generally not been offered a space. This new policy formalizes that practice and ensures our staff is ready to transition from camper to a leadership position. Cost: The only cost for attending Camp Celiac is a $25 registration fee, as it has been since the camp’s founding. Donations: Although our $25 registration fee will remain the same in 2017, our costs have risen over the past decade and we rely on donations to provide the programming that makes Camp Celiac so special. If you are able, please consider a donation to Camp Celiac at Camp Arroyo. You can do so by visiting Seeking sponsors for July 1st soccer match at Stanford Stadium: Our foundation is partnering with the San Jose Earthquakes for a fundraiser and celiac awareness night at their big annual game against the L.A. Galaxy team on July 1, 2017, at the Stanford Stadium. Please contact me if you have a corporate or individual sponsor to suggest. We need to line up sponsors to proceed with planning this fun event. Special thanks to our nonprofit partner, The Taylor Family Foundation; TTFF co-founder and president Elaine Taylor; camp organizer Jackie Corley; camp doctors Doug Corley, MD, PhD, MPH, and Amy Burkhart, MD, RD; volunteer Molly Stone; camp director Richard Bernstein; and all the volunteers, business sponsors and individual donors who make camp possible for our community. We wish you a holiday season filled with warm memories and lots of gluten-free treats. Jennifer Iscol President Celiac Community Foundation of Northern California P.O. Box 1506 Healdsburg, CA 95448
