Gluten Free Camp
at Camp Y-Noah
(near Akron , Ohio)

August 3- 9, 2014   
Cost  $455.00

Come join in the fun!
At the first year of Gluten Free Camp at Camp Y-Noah!
Registration and info at

From their website:
"We started this camp because our daughters have attended Gluten Free
Camp at Camp Manitou-Lin in Michigan for past few years and they had a
wonderful time (Thank You Greta and Nicole). Our only problem was the
drive to get them there and the drive to bring them home; 10 hours round

Through the years we had discussed how nice it would be for there to be a
camp closer to home. Then we came across Camp Y-Noah.  The head of
their food service is a celiac and they already provide gluten free options
during regular Y camp and actually serve all gluten free food during their
diabetic camp week. They were happy to help us start the first Ohio Gluten
free Camp!

The children will be doing normal camp activities.  Some of the options they
will have are, a 55 foot alpine tower, climbing a rock wall with zip line, high
and low rope courses, canoeing , swimming, horseback riding, team building,
camp fires, gaga ball, archery and crafts.  The cabins will be organized by
Boy / Girl and age once we know who is attending.

We are planning on having visits from a pediatric gastroenterologist and a
gluten free nutrition expert to have age appropriate conversations about why
they are gluten free, what to pack for school lunches, what to eat when they
are unexpectedly at a friend’s house and reading labels."
