2014 Red Balloon Run & Ride

Food Allergy

Welcome to the Food Allergy Team!

Food Allergy Camp is one of the first overnight camps for children with food allergies in the nation! We have had three successful summers at Camp Sweeney, and with your help we can continue to have a 4th year. This past August, we had 62 kiddos with over 48 different food allergens and zero allergic reactions. We had so much fun, and hope to keep providing a fun and safe environment for our kids to enjoy each and every summer.
