Camp TAG Goes Virtual for 2020!

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.

Camp TAG will consist of five (5), 1-hour Zoom sessions with FAACT staff and teen counselors helping lead the sessions - with one session per week over 5 weeks. Teen counselor positions have already been filled.

The age groups are: ages 4-6, 7-8, 9-10, and 11-13. There will be multiple sessions on each day because we will have about 10 campers per age group. We will do our best to group campers with their same friends from the Camp TAG location they usually attend. And, we will place new campers in the appropriate groups.

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 weekly session will be different.

Each camper will receive a Camp TAG box that includes:

  • Five (5) education activities
  • Five (5) camp craft kits
  • One (1) Fire-side Chats by Walden for camp games
  • One (1) FAACT Camp TAG Virtual 2020 t-shirt
  • Auvi-Q trainers
  • EpiPen trainers
  • Samples from allergen-friendly food companies
  • Other fun goodies
