The Gluten-Free Food Service certification program (GFFS) is kicking off summer the right way by announcing the recent certification of the Gilmont Camp and Conference Center in northeast Texas (Gilmer). Summer getaways and a week at camp are an important part of many kid’s lives and can be a life-changing experience. Locations such as Gilmont Camp provide the opportunity for gluten-free kids and teens to have a place to go for a week during the summer and have fun just being a kid. The inclusive camp environment helps to build confidence by allowing gluten-free kids to be part of a group and not feel isolated due to their dietary needs, something that many schools can’t provide.
Gilmont Camp and Conference Center hosts the Great Gluten Escape Summer Camp each year – a completely gluten-free week long camp experience. For 11 years, Gilmont Camp has provided this week specifically for gluten-free kids; giving them safe options in their dining halls and removing the worries that these kids often have about the foods that they eat. The addition of a GFFS certification assures the continuation of these safe measures. More information about the Great Gluten Escape Summer camp can be found here.
Gilmont also hosts rental groups year-round for off-site training, meetings, and gatherings for a variety of organizations, family groups, as well as corporate and nonprofit entities.
