What is Camp Celiac?
Camp Celiac is a one-week summer camp for approximately 145 children and youth with Celiac Disease, ages 8-16. It is located at the site of Camp Aldersgate in beautiful North Scituate, Rhode Island. The property is situated on 230 acres of woods, fields and trails, and includes a lake, waterfront cabins, woodside cabins, dining hall, solar bath house, waterfront bathhouse, a retreat center (including a great hall, two kitchens, sleeping areas, and four lavatories with showers), and a health lodge.

Camp Celiac and Camp Aldersgate have developed layers of safety measures over the years to ensure a safe gluten-free environment. Camp Celiac provides two full time, registered nurses who handle all non-emergency medical needs, including administering medications. Emergency medical transportation is available within seven to ten minutes.

How do I register my child for Camp Celiac?
We encourage early registration as camp fills very quickly. Camp applicants are accepted on a first come, first served basis. Campers must be age 8 and not older than 16 by the first day of camp,to be eligible. Campers are assigned to living spaces by gender and age. Although an effort will be made to accommodate requests for friends, of the same age group, to bunk in the same living area, we cannot guarantee to meet these requests. Any such request must be made in writing on the camp Registration form for consideration.

Please mail the fully completed Registration form, found at the top of the HOME page on this website, with full payment made payable to Camp Celiac, to the PO Box listed on the form. Please print clearly and legibly on the form, making sure your email address can be deciphered without difficulty; your email address is our primary means of communicating with you.

Once a Registration form and payment are received, an email will be sent to you advising that your child has been assigned a spot at camp.  It is important that you take whatever steps are appropriate for your email environment to ensure that denise@campceliac.org is not flagged as Spam or Junk.  We will then provide a password to access the Enrollment packet, which contains pertinent information necessary for camp week. The forms in the packet must be returned no later than July 1 to maintain your child’s spot at camp. An email will also be sent if camp has been filled and your child has been placed on the Waiting List.

If the bed availability listed in the box on the HOME page shows an age/gender group is full, please mail in the fully completed Registration form, without payment, to be placed on the Waiting List.

At this time, we do not accept Registration forms via email or fax, nor payment via credit card. Registration forms and payment by check are only accepted to the PO Box listed on the form.

Are there scholarships available?
We do have a very limited number of scholarships available, but you still must register for camp and provide full payment at the time of registration, in order to be guaranteed a spot at camp. If and when a scholarship is awarded, your payment will be returned. Please see further information under the Scholarship Program section on this website.

How do I volunteer as a Counselor or a Camp Nurse?
Many of our staff return year after year, but there are times when family or work commitments prevent that. So, we are always on the lookout for new volunteers. Camp Celiac covers the expense of camp fees for volunteer staff in exchange for their services for the week. We do not cover any travel fees however, and there is a small fee for background reference checks. Staff is required to come to camp early the first day for training. Staff training starts at 9:00 AM on the first day of Camp and ends when the campers arrive at 3:30 pm for check-in. Camp Celiac counselors are required to be at least 24 years of age to be eligible, and new volunteers will be interviewed by phone prior to acceptance and placement.

If interested, please email info@campceliac.org to arrange a phone interview.
