Couple reminders:

1)  Many GF companies have generously donated items for our raffle table at check-in, with the proceeds going to camp! We will be offering chances to enter the raffle, and you may enter as many times as you want with cash, or checks made out to Camp Celiac.  The winners will take home their items at check-out on Friday along with their camper!

2)  Camp photos will be offered as two options again this year. You may purchase an 8×10 group photo of your camper’s age group, and/or an 8×10 collage of all three age groups. The cost of each photo is $10.00, so be sure to bring cash or a check to place your order!  We have to know on Sunday who wants pictures, so they are ready for you on Friday.​

3)  If you listed Over the Counter medications on the As Needed medication form, remember, you must supply these and turn them in at check-in. We will only have Acetaminophen, Ibuprofen, and the topical medications Hydrocortisone 1% and Bacitracin on hand, and can only make those available to campers who have turned in the As Needed form signed and dated by a Licensed Medical Health Care Provider.

4)  We are going GREEN again this year and your camper will be given a Camp Celiac reusable water bottle at check-in. Each camper will be responsible for keeping his/her bottle full of water and having it with them. If your camper loses his/her bottle, we will replace it of course, but you will be asked to pay $3.00 at check-out for the replacement cost.5)  Remember campers LOVE to receive letters from home during camp week. Please do not mail food or candy, however, because the chipmunks and other critters enjoy coming in to see what’s available, so we keep all edible items out of the living areas. Letters that will arrive by Thursday of camp week can be mailed to:

Camp Aldersgate/Camp Celiac
Campers First and Last Name
1043 Snake Hill Road
N. Scituate, RI 02857

6)  Remember to mark your camper’s belongings with a fabric marker or sharpie, so lost items can be found. Every year we have lots of personal items left at camp. Marking things with the camper’s name will go a long way in getting them back to your camper before they pack up to head home on Friday.

7)  Remember no electronics are allowed at camp – NO cellphones – NO iPods- PLEASE DO NOT leave these with your camper. If we find them, they will not be allowed to keep them; we will take them and hold them until camp check-out, but camp will not be responsible for their loss or damage during this time. So, tell your camper to unplug for the week and enjoy the company of their friends, in person!

8)  If you have an urgent need to reach a Camp Celiac Director during camp week, please call 916-6CE-LIAC. This phone will be monitored only between Thursday, August 1 and Saturday, August 10. All other times and for non-camp-week inquiries, please continue to email info@campceliac.org.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you on August 4!  See the Blogs on www.campceliac.org for our by-age staggered check-in times.
