Training Camp In Pa

Well, since a few weeks there's a question that bothers me (especially after visiting germany and my german team). I thought, how cool it would be, when my german team could visit us in their summer vacation. And since there are 2 people in our team with celiac (one of my students and myself) we could offer a vacation for celiac people also.

I already talked with my boss at the one YMCA about it (i instruct at several YMCA's) and she was excited. In fact, she asked me first at the very same moment I wanted to ask her. Funny, eh? So now we made an appointment next tuesday at 10.30 am about how we're going to plan everything. When I was home, it popped into my head, that it would be awesome to integrate the celiac people in there. I mean, if we have to get food for two people, why not for 10 or so???

And I think, this wouldn't be a bad idea, to bring the celiacs and the healthy people together, since the awareness would grow a great deal among people who don't know, what celiac disease is. Or maybe they know, but they are not aware how many restrictions we have with it.

So this will be more like a training and stay healthy camp...lol. We train kickboxing and/or musical forms/acrobatic kicks. Don't worry, it's semicontact. I already saw 3 and 70 year olds do that. You must know, with semicontact you can make your own pace very good. And it will be focused on every level: beginner, advanced and pros. But you could probably also do simple stuff like aerobic or so in the YMCA itself or go totally without sport and do more sightseeing. If you have a YMCA AWAY membership card (the letters AWAY on the backside of your membership card) you can take these classes for free or you can pay visitor fee for one day also. I just wanted to mention it, because you could make a vacation and eat glutenfree without much problems also. And we try to do fun stuff, like go on the climbing tower or visit Hershey park or so.

So if you have any questions or regards, post them on here and I will ask my boss tuesday.

Hugs, Stef

Steff-

YMCA does gluten free camps for kids through the GIG (gluten intollerance group). You might want to try to contact that "camp" to see how they do things and how they got set up. I know they have been doing it for a while now.
