GD Camp Registration Event!
Whether you're child is curious about what goes on at our Gluten Detective Camp, or is eager to see friends from camp, your Gluten Detective won't want to miss this fun evening! (Adults without Gluten Detectives are welcome to join us, too.) On Monday, March 2, the legendary Captain Rich will be playing camp favorite songs, among the backdrop of a Hawaiian luau. Camp Leaders will be on hand to answer questions about GD camp (August 4, 5 and 6th) this year, and for those families who want to reserve a spot, you can turn in your registration form that evening. Our GDs will be creating some fun crafts and sampling the new Girl Scout cookie!
We will also be filming a short piece for our friends at Carleton College, and we are looking for volunteers who would like to participate in a fun filming event! If your GD wants to take part in our piece, "Having Celiac Disease Makes Me Feel...", please let us know by replying to this email. We will have them answer 1-2 questions on film, and they will receive a small gift for their participation! We are looking for children, aged 6-17.
As always, there is no fee for our events, and no need to RSVP!
Gluten Detective Camp Registration is Open!
We hope you will join us for our fifth annual, Gluten Detective Camp to be held on August 4, 5 and 6th. GD Camp is open to children entering grades K-5th (fall 2015). This year we will be celebrating gluten free cooking and baking. In addition to area chefs leading our Gluten Detectives through cooking lessons, we will also be taking a very special field trip and filming our very own cooking show! As always, we will be staying true to our mantra of "Investigate, Advocate & Celebrate" with daily modules including mental health exercises, as well as advocacy lessons. Camp runs daily from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Register early (click here to download registration form) because this year's camp will definitely fill up quickly!
Thank you Dr. Poulin!

Please join us for a 30 minute orientation class. Offered every Monday from 6:00-6:30, this class is free and open to the public. It will provide you with a basic overview of your new lifestyle and arm you with the tools you need to make sound choices in the grocery store and in your kitchen!
"The Celiac Center has been a blessing to me and my family. It's a wonderful resource where I've been able to get real-life, practical help from those who have been in my shoes and know what I'm going through. It means a lot to know I have a group that I can reach out to when I need it. I'm glad my family and I don't have to take this journey alone."
