Celiac-Friendly Summer Camps

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

In case anyone is interested in finding a summer camp that's safe for a celiac kid to attend, I'm working for the next six months at Ballibay Camps, Inc. -- which is one campus with several different fine and performing arts programs (as well as more traditional camp activities). We have a new food program (this is our second year) focusing on sustainable whole ingredients that are locally-sourced and organic whenever possible (we also have a camp garden) -- we've been accommodating the needs of several celiacs over the course of the past three summers without needing the kids to bring any of their own food -- kitchen staff are conscientious about avoiding cross-contamination and using alternative grains and ingredients.

The main camp website with our theatre and performing arts program (which includes further discussion of the food program): http://www.ballibay.com

Our shorter, more traditional fine arts camp program: http://thefarmartscamp.com

The rock music program: http://rockfarmcamp.com

Our dance intensive: http://www.endlessmountainsdancecamp.com/

I can vouch for how great this place is -- I'm returning to teach here for the summer after 14 years away and kids have an amazing time here!

Even without the food angle, that looks like a really awesome camp. :)
