GIG Kids programs provide support to children living a gluten-free lifestyle and their families.
GIG KIDS CAMPS
Overnight Summer Camps: GIG believes in children with gluten sensitivities need to learn how to live within the “real world.” We offer integrated summer camp programs, where our gluten-free kids go to camp with non-GF children to have a great summer camping experience. GIG Kids Camp volunteers work to prepare GF meals to match or exceed the regular camp menu. We work with the children to help them be responsible for their choices by educating them and everyone at camp about special food needs. We take advantage of the camping experience to educate other campers and staff about gluten sensitivities by sharing special treats and games played during snack times. These have become popular activities at camp for everyone and helps the GIG Kids to feel good about themselves.
GIG Kids Camps are in Seattle WA and Wake Forest NC. If you would like to help start additional GIG Kids Camps, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
GIG Kids Day Camp: This program offers younger kids the chance to have a fun-day learning and doing activities related to living gluten-free (GF). These programs are run by local GIG Branches. For more information about a program near you, contact us at email@example.com.
