The Sherwood Park Celiac Support Group is thrilled to announce the 2nd annual Celiac Children’s Camp!

ywca yowochas campOur first camp, which ran in July of 2012, was a huge success with both the Celiac campers and parents alike. We received wonderful reviews, not only about the gluten-free food served, but also about the fabulous activities at the camp.

The Sherwood Park Celiac Support Group partnered with the Allergy Asthma Information Association (AAIA) and YWCA YoWoChAs Outdoor Education Center to provide an opportunity for children with Celiac disease to attend summer camp. The camp is open to children 6 – 15 years of age and will be held at the YWCA YoWoChAs Outdoor Education Center (80 km west of Edmonton, AB) from August 5 – 9, 2013. The Celiac campers will participate in all camp activities. They will eat with their assigned groups, but receive a modified menu and serve themselves from a gluten-free buffet. Every effort will be made to ensure that there is no cross-contamination.

We would like to make this opportunity to go to camp available to ALL Celiac children. Your help in accomplishing this would be greatly appreciated! If you know of any Celiac children that may be interested in going to camp, would you be so kind as to pass this along? Thank you, in advance, for your help!

If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail us at spceliacs@gmail.com or call Cathy at 780-467-6170.

Thanks again,

Sherwood Park Celiac Support Group
