started this camp because our daughters have attended Gluten Free Camp at Camp Manitou-Lin
in Michigan for past few years and they had a wonderful time (Thank You Greta
and Nicole). Our only problem was the drive to get them there and the drive to
bring them home; 10 hours round trip.
Through the years we had discussed how nice it would be for there to be a camp
closer to home. Then we came across Camp Y-Noah.The head of their food service is a celiac
and they already provide gluten free options during regular Y camp and actually
serve all gluten free food during their diabetic camp week. They were happy to
help us start the first Ohio Gluten free Camp!
The children will be doing normal camp activities. Some of the options they will have are, a 55
foot alpine tower, climbing a rock wall with zip line, high and low rope
courses, canoeing , swimming, horseback riding, team building, camp fires, gaga
ball, archery and crafts.The cabins
will be organized by Boy / Girl and age once we know who is attending.
We are planning on having visits from a pediatric gastroenterologist and a gluten
free nutrition expert to have age appropriate conversations about why they are
gluten free, what to pack for school lunches, what to eat when they are
unexpectedly at a friend’s house and reading labels.
