From a study in the Journal Pediatrics: kids who attend a dedicated gluten free summer camp enjoy important benefits. Namely, they leave the experience with a more positive outlook and self-perception, as well as an improved sense of well-being and emotional outlook.


“All seemed to benefit from camp, no longer feeling different from other kids or feeling frustrated with a restricted diet,” reported researchers in the journal Pediatrics. While all of the children enjoyed the camp experience, those who had been on a gluten-free diet for less than four years benefited the most. These children left camp no longer feeling embarrassed or isolated from other kids because of their restricted diet. Campers also learned new coping mechanisms from others in camp who had been living gluten free for a longer time.
