Here’s your chance to win a two-week camp session on beautiful Cape Cod! It’s easy! If you have food allergies, and are currently in the second through sixth grade, just tell us why you’d like to come to Camp W*K, and you could have the best summer ever!
What’s your idea of a great summer? Grab your family, check out our website, watch our video, and then get creative! By the way, got food allergies? No problem!
In addition to being completely nut-free, we easily accommodate other food allergies. Our own Chef Tom uses only fresh ingredients, cooks and bakes from scratch, and ensures there is no cross-contamination of food products. Here is more information on our food allergy protocol.
Camp Wingate*Kirkland is a traditional overnight camp where you are inspired and empowered with a choice of daily activities. And like it was 55 years ago – W * K is not a “plugged in” camp. Campers feel supported and confident to step out of their comfort-zone and try new things without the fear of failure. Camper safety, having fun, and developing life skills are our priorities.
A two-week mini camp overnight experience (July 20 – August 3, 2014, value: $4,250) for one child at Camp Wingate*Kirkland, located in Yarmouth Port, MA. Also, A Enjoy Life Foods Gift pack, compliments of Enjoy Life Foods! Enjoy Life Foods will also provide an allergy-free snack for ALL the campers during one day of camp.

For Parents/Guardians: Why is an overnight summer camp experience at Camp Wingate*Kirkland important for your child with food allergies? (500 words or less)
