Camp TAG Winter 2020 - Registration Is Open!

Camp TAG provides a safe place for children with food allergies, eosinophilic disorders, FPIES, Celiac disease, and asthma and their non-allergic siblings to have fun. Since we had to cancel Camp TAG this summer due to COVID-19, we wanted to figure out a way to still connect with our families. So, we decided to offer a virtual Camp TAG this summer, which was a huge success with 132 campers and 28 teen counselors from 32 states and Canada. Many families asked for a Winter session, so we decided to offer a 3-day Camp TAG. 

Camp TAG will consist of three (3), 1-hour Zoom sessions with FAACT staff and teen counselors helping lead the sessions - with one session per day: December 28, 29, 30.

Age groups: 4-6, 7-8, 9-10, and 11-13.

During each 1-hour session, we will cover an education activity, a craft, and a camp game. The campers will still learn the Camp TAG song during sessions. Each session will be different.

Each camper will receive a Camp TAG box that includes:

  • Three (3) camp craft kits
  • One (1) FAACT Camp TAG Virtual Winter 2020 t-shirt
  • Auvi-Q trainers
  • FAACT resources
  • Other fun goodies

Schedule

The sessions will take place on:
Monday, December 28
Tuesday, December 29
Wednesday, December 30

There are 30 spots available for each age group. Each camper will participate each day. We will schedule campers from the EST/CST zones in the earlier sessions, and campers from the MST/PST zones in the afternoon sessions.

Ages 4-6: 

  • 9am-10am EST
  • 2pm-3pm EST / 11am-12pm PST
