Camp TAG provides a safe place for children with food allergies, eosinophilic disorders and asthma and their non-allergic siblings to have fun – with no worries about allergic reactions – and meet other children who share similar experiences. It is a bonding and empowering week for all campers, including parents.
Camp TAG is 95% fun and 5% educational, with age-appropriate activities and games each day on food allergies, anaphylaxis, nutrition, the emotional impact of living with food allergies (for children with food allergies and their families), and how to stay safe at school and at home. The curriculum was designed and reviewed by FAACT's Medical Advisory Board.
Activities each day will include camp game...s, ropes course, climbing tower, canoeing, arts and crafts, music, swimming, pedal carts, miniature golf, Ga-ga, archery, mine chutes, and field sports such as soccer, basketball, baseball, flag football, lacrosse, and tennis.
This ONE-WEEK, DAY CAMP is designed specifically for children ages 4-12. For camp activities, children are grouped by ages to ensure experiences are age-appropriate:
