Camp Emerson

Allergy Camp

After missing out on summer camp as a kid, I worked at one during my summers at university. It really opened my eyes to how incredible this experience can be for kids.

I met Sue Lein, the owner of Camp Emerson last May – a camp in Massachusetts that accommodates campers with ALL food allergies. She has an egg allergy and manages a camp that takes care of every single allergy safety detail, so kids can really focus on having FUN! They are now enrolling for summer sessions.

I know the idea of sending an allergic child to sleep-away camp can be scary, however I urge you to read this page on their allergy policies. This should be considered the gold standard for camps accommodating allergic campers:
