Generation GF, along with summer camp locations across the United States, is happy to provide the opportunity for gluten-free kids and teens to have a place to go for a week during the summer and have fun just being a kid. The camp environment builds comradery, allowing our members of Generation GF to be part of a group and not feel isolated due to their dietary needs. Camp activities vary per location but may include water sports, canoeing, crafts, horseback riding, archery, and others.
GIG makes every effort to monitor your child’s diet and intake by using the gluten-free diet outlined by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND). The Generation GF Camp staff, and Generation GF Camp dietitians, will work with campers as needed to provide education and support for the gluten-free diet. GIG staff will work with the top 8 allergens, however we are not equipped to handle the very specialized dietary needs. We will work closely with you and the camp staff to be sure no child intentionally or unintentionally eats inappropriate food.
We feel that Generation GF Camps can be a life-changing experience for the youth in our community.
