Food Allergy Friendly
​Adventure Camp

Food allergies should not get in the way of camp!

CoFAS Camp Flyer Draft 2.png

Coastal Food Allergy Support (CoFas) is hosting a Food Allergy Friendly Adventure Camp at Triple R Ranch in Chesapeake Virginia on Saturday, September 21, 2024.

  • Fee for half-day campers 5 to 7 years old is $21 

  • Fee for full-day campers 5 to 7 years old is $43

  • Fee for campers 8 years and older is $59

A generous grant from FARE supported certain costs for this event.

Activity Details

The day is planned with activities for kids 5-teenagers.  But no worries, everyone will be in groups of similar aged kids. There will be many fun activities throughout the day so everyone should go home tired! The activities get more adventurous for the older campers. Kids who are 8 and older can transition from pony rides to riding horses on their own. This makes the price a little higher for the 8+ age groups. 

For the 5-7 year old campers who might be experiencing camp for the first time there are two options to choose from. If your camper would prefer to try our camp but not stay all day, then the half day option is for them.  If your camper is ready to attend a full day of day of camp alone, then you select the 5-7 year old session. Activities offered will be similar until the half day campers depart for the day. Both groups will conquer the climbing wall, enjoy a pony ride, barn tour and critter corral and experience a shooting sport. The all day campers will continue their day with archery tag and leather craft.

Coming from Out of Town

If you are coming from out of town and would like to visit for the long weekend there is plenty to do in Hampton Roads! 

Triple R Ranch does offer accommodations but they are not typical hotel style accommodations. If you prefer to stay in a hotel the closest are in the Greenbrier area of Chesapeake.  Options include Hilton Garden Inn, Aloft, Winngate, Hyatt place, and others.

Virginia Beach is not far and the oceanfront is a popular tourist destination. Great deals can be found in the off season.
