A Summer Camp Just for Kids with Food Allergies

A Lifetime Experience with the Safety for Your Food Allergy Child

Summer camp can create memories for kids they take into their old age that includes independence, new friendships, learning about teamwork and just plain fun. If you have a child with food allergies and eczema - the thought of summer camp for your child can create extreme anxiety.  Now there is a camp created for this problem.  Blue Spruce Summer Camp accommodates children with food allergies so they don't have to be left out of the summer fun. 

Blue Spruce summer camp provides an authentic summer camp without the worry of food allergies.  The entire camp is free of the foods that cause 90% of allergic reactions including: egg, dairy, tree nuts, peanuts, sesame, fish, shellfish, soy, wheat and gluten.  This allows a worry free experience and also gives food allergy kids a chance to be with individuals that share the same food allergy challenges and experiences.  This allows campers to leave with more confidence, support and likeminded friends. 

During the day campers enjoy sports, swimming, nature hikes, cooking, arts and crafts. Nighttime is filled with campfire activities including songs, night swimming, square dancing, scavenger hunts and even a square dance.  The camp site has a swimming pool, nature field, pond and a creek. 

The only requirement for camp is children must be between 9-17 years old and have a food allergy. Friends and siblings of kids with food allergies can attend if there is space.  Camp Blue Spruce holds 80 children at one time.

Registration is now open for Camp Blue Spruce. For more information visit http://www.campbluespruce.org
