Under the direction of the Provincial Government, Camp Celiac will not operate residential children’s summer camp sessions in 2020.
We are heartbroken that we are unable to operate what would have been a successful inaugural year. While we are saddened by the announcement, we support the decision that the health and safety of our campers, staff and families must take priority. We want to wish all our camp families and supporters continued health and happiness this summer. While we won’t be together, Camp Celiac is not going away. Stay tuned for updates and other information on our 2021 sessions.
Camp Celiac will return stronger than ever in 2021.
Take care of yourselves and each other.
