Girl Scout Diagnosed with Celiac Disease Offers Gluten-Free Camp in Ithaca, NY (August 2014)


I received a message on Facebook the other day from a very proud mom. Her daughter, Sabrina DeVos, diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2002, is a Girl Scout member working towards earning her Gold Award. Mom shared that Sabrina’s project  is to start a gluten- free camp in the Finger Lakes region (Comstock), Ithaca, New York. Sabrina has been attending a summer camp in Rhode Island for years, and now wants to offer others with CD in her area a chance to enjoy a  gluten-free camp. “As a Girl Scout, I’ve gained leadership and organizational skills and feel I now have the tools to organize this great experience!”

The entirely gluten-free weekend camp  is open for boys and girls ages 8 – 15 years old, and will be held August 1, 2014 – August 3, 2014. Children with Celiac/Gluten Sensitivity and Lactose Intolerance can be accommodated.

What a great way to earn a Gold Award, Sabrina!

  1. So nice to read of this young girl’s efforts. I applaud her.

  2. Thanks for sharing the link to the interview! I’m very impressed with all the work Sabrina has put into this effort and am glad the word is getting out about her new camp. 🙂

    • You are welcome Molly! Yes, Sabrina is a remarkable young woman, I’m hoping to see the camp become an annual event!
