We are so pleased to announce that the Food Allergy Institute will be partnering with PAK for another great CAMP ROAR! We will also be applying for a FARE grant to support extra fun for our campers.

Summer Youth Camp: Monday, July 4 through Friday, July 8, 9am-12:00pm (Cost: $25 per child) Pineville United Methodist Church 110 S. Polk Street, Pineville, NC 28134. This will be a drop-off camp for rising Kindergartners (5 years of age, on or before 8/31) through rising 8th graders. We will split into three age groups. We will secure a food allergy savvy nurse to serve as a volunteer. The campers will not know he/she is a nurse.

During camp, youth will have the opportunity to participate in typical camp activities such as arts/crafts and outdoor activities. Children will also participate in a variety of team building and group activities designed to encourage interaction with other food allergic youth. Topics covered during camp will vary based on demographics and needs of the group. Activities and small group discussions during camp will be centered around the topics below although these will likely vary based on the needs of the group.

Food Allergies 101, Challenges of Living with Food Allergies, Food allergies at home, school, camp, restaurants, etc., Food allergies in families, with friends, etc., Food allergies in the future, Facing the Challenge, Recognizing current strengths and resources, Tools and strategies to assist with these challenges, including: Peer and family relationships, Teasing/bulling, Stress and anxiety, Self management, Self advocacy
