Congratulations on your DD getting into the camp!!! How exciting for her to be able to go -- and exciting for you that you don't have to sit and worry about the MFA's. Truly amazing! Let's hope she has the time of her life, and if you go one year you end up with some priority for the next year!

Yes, and if she actually has a question about the ingredients, she can ask one of the allergists there, and I know she will be given the correct answer. I know your ds is pa and egg allergic, right? But I think he is younger than my dd. Anyhow, I have the impression that they would have no problem accomodating egg allergy. They said at the meeting that they keep the food items really simple with few ingredients to make it easy for the kids to determine what is safe. Maybe they have a chapter in your area, if your ds wants to go at some point.

How absolutely wonderful for you and your DD! How long will the camp be and how will you spend your time without her around? Enjoy and have a terrific summer!

We used to send my little brother to asthma camp (somewhere in Indiana). He loved it. My mom was relieved to know that conscientious staff who could handle his needs were all on board. He loved it.
It also gave the rest of the family a break from carrying extra inhalers and meds for him all the time. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img] We had a week off and he had a week of fun and hijinx.
