Some people go a bit overboard with the " what ifs". Even , on the rare occasion the stuff is made from wheat oil, and it has a stray molecule of protein.... then it is .05% ( maybe less?) of a whole 4 oz bottle of lotion- even if you drank the whole bottle- it isn't enough to gluten you.

I was in the hospital once for six days and had nothing except the glucose in the iv solution- and I survived. Since it is only for two weeks I wouldn't worry about a balanced diet, or getting every nutrient every day. Some celiacs react to oats, but lots of steamed rice would be good for getting calories. If you took nuts that would add both fat and protein in a relatively small space per calorie. Then just add a gluten free multivitamin/mineral.
Sounds like a great trip - hope you have a good and healthy time.
