Our Gluten Detectives meet at 6:30 p.m. on the first Monday of the month. These hour-long classes are filled with a variety of educational and support activities. Whether you’re a Junior Detective (age 3-7), Senior Detective (age 8-12) or Captain (age 13-17), please come and meet others who are battling and overcoming the same challenges you are!
Photos will be taken for your official Gluten Detective i.d. card at your first class. Hope to see you there, gluten sleuths!
Gluten Detective Camp was a Recipe for Fun!
In early August, over 50 children from over five states, convened in Bloomington at the Celiac Center of Minnesota for the fifth, annual Gluten Detective camp. The GDs spent their days learning new baking skills, filming public service messages and even picking up some tennis lessons, thanks to one of our GD camper's parent and tennis pro, Hayley Horning-Shibley. The children were broken into teams named the Silly Sifters, the Rocking Rollers, and the Mighty Mixers and enjoyed daily baking lessons with our three guest bakers. GDs enjoyed making new friends and eating some of their favorite lunches, including Applegate Farms corn dogs, Udi's pizzas, and fresh pasta from R.P.'s pasta. We couldn't put this camp on without the generous support of our camp sponsors, so please patronize the businesses listed on this page. We had a great time "investigating, advocating and celebrating" with our Gluten Detectives this year, and we're already counting the days until next year's camp!
