“I have a kid who won’t sit at the table because eating is painful for him, and he really enjoys meal time at camp.” – Colleen, Mom of camper with food allergies.
Sending your camper to camp is challenging for many reasons, but it can be terrifying if he has a food allergy (or a number of allergies). How do you truly trust that the camp you have chosen for your son can appropriately handle his allergies while at the same time provide him a balanced and nutritious diet over the summer? Jason spends some time with camp Colleen & Blair, parents of a camper with severe food allergies. They discuss the process from enrollment to that first meal at camp, what meal time is like for their son, how to deal with the stress and anxiety as a parent, and some great advice for first year and prospective camp parents.
