The Celiac Strong Camp Director, Sabrina DeVos, discussed the new initiative Wednesday on News 8 at Noon.
DeVos, who was diagnosed with Celiac Disease when she was 6 years old, came up with the idea for the camp as part of her effort to earn her Girl Scout Gold Award. DeVos has attended a camp for Celiac Disease sufferers in Rhode Island and wanted to bring the concept closer to home. The Marion resident will hold the Celiac Strong Camp on August 1-3 at the Comstock Girl Scout Camp in Ithaca.
Boys and girls ages 8-15 with Celiac Disease or gluten intolerance are welcome. A maximum of 60 campers will enjoy a stress free weekend, without any fear of cross contamination of food.
