The Zajac Ranch is proposing a camp for kids with anaphylactic food allergies: http://www.zajacranch.com/ Proposed dates are Aug 25-29, 2014, and it would be for ages 8-17. Meals would be free of Top 8 Allergens, can accommodate celiac, and medical staff will be onsite. Still undecided if it will be a kids-only camp or family camp. The location is a forested / lakefront area a little more than an hour outside of Vancouver. We are looking for 20 more campers in addition to the around 20 we have now, in order to proceed with this.

Please PM me if you are interested, and help spread the word to others that might be interested. Siblings and friends without allergies are welcome to attend along with the allergic child.

Yes, we are really excited about this! We need several more children to sign up so there is the minimum number required to go ahead.

Everyone, if you know any families in the Vancouver area (or who would like to travel to the Vancouver area) to participate, please have them PM me, or contact the Zajac Foundation directly at info@zajac.com or 604-739-0444.

We need your help to spread the word on this so it can actually go ahead! Thanks.l

Just a follow-up about this camp. They are looking for more children to attend as a minimum of 40 children is required for them to run the camp. Dates are Monday Aug 25 to Fri Aug 29, 2014. Location is just over an hour's drive east from Vancouver, BC.

Ages will be 7-17, not 8-17 as previously mentioned.

Food served will be free of top allergens, and they can also accommodate celiac, and non life-threatening allergens outside of the top 10.

For more information about the camp, visit their website: http://www.zajacranch.com/ or contact camp coordinator: james@zajacranch.com

Several members of the Metro Vancouver Anaphylaxis Group will be sending their children - myself included! Check out our group website: http://www.vancouveranaphylaxis.com/ or our FB page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/vancouveranaphylaxis/
