I’ve shared before how much I enjoy Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bakery gluten-free products and appreciate all they do for the gluten-free community. So I was very pleased and very excited when Rudi’s gave me more reasons to be a fan with their “Happy Camper” contest being held this month in honor of National Celiac Awareness Month.
Rudi’s will award 10 kids (ages 8 – 17) a trip to gluten-free summer camp. This contest is truly a great opportunity for gluten-free kids. The entry requirements are pretty simple. They include liking Rudi’s Gluten Free Bakery Facebook page and your child submitting no more than a 200-page essay telling Rudi’s what going to a gluten-free summer camp would mean to him/her. Your child gets to select his/her top three camp choices from a provided list, but if they already know of a camp they would like to attend that is not included they can request that camp as one of their choices. Each of the 10 winners will be reimbursed up to $1,500 for camping expenses (that includes travel to and from the camp).
The 10 winners will be selected by Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bakery and announced on their Facebook page on June 10, 2013, giving parents and campers plenty of time to get ready for their gluten-free camp adventure. How very exciting! Read more and enter here.
Best of luck to all who enter! I’d really like at least one of my gfe readers’ kids to win! Please pass on to other gluten-free families, too.
But wait, there’s more! Longtime gfe readers will know that I’m a huge fan of camping in general. I believe camping is good for everyone’s soul and is a truly great activity for families to partake in. Camping as a family helped Son grow into the adult he is, with a love and passion for nature and the outdoors. And camping has long been the most common way that Mr. GFE and I “disconnect” from life’s challenges and find our peace and joy once again. So when Rudi’s offered me an opportunity to share the news on their Happy Camper Contest and conduct a camping-themed giveaway, too, I immediately said “YES!”
This giveaway could be the start of your camping adventures or it could be an opportunity for you to replace some of your camping gear that’s worn out. Let’s get a more close-up view of what the giveaway package includes:
