We are pleased to announce that Camp Celiac will return in July 2017 for our 11th year of gluten-free camp. Once again, we will have two three-night sessions for campers ages 9 to 15:
Sunday, July 16 - Tuesday, July 19
Tuesday, July 19 - Saturday, July 22
Registration for campers, counselors and junior counselors will open on February 1, 2017, on the Camp Celiac website, www.celiaccamp.com
. Counselors and junior counselors are expected to commit for the full six nights of camp. We will send a reminder in January before registration begins. If this email was forwarded to you, subscribe to our newsletter from our website to receive the reminder: celiaccommunity.org
Junior counselor policy:
Beginning this year we are requiring junior counselors to have taken one year off between attending as a camper and serving as a junior counselor. Most other camps offered by The Taylor Family Foundation have this policy and we believe it is appropriate for Camp Celiac. Because we always have more junior counselor applicants than space, we give priority to those applicants entering 12th grade; thus, in practice, applicants entering 11th grade have generally not been offered a space. This new policy formalizes that practice and ensures our staff is ready to transition from camper to a leadership position.
The only cost for attending Camp Celiac is a $25 registration fee, as it has been since the camp’s founding.
Although our $25 registration fee will remain the same in 2017, our costs have risen over the past decade and we rely on donations to provide the programming that makes Camp Celiac so special. If you are able, please consider a donation to Camp Celiac at Camp Arroyo. You can do so by visiting http://celiaccamp.com/pages/donations_and_payment.php
