Preparing for Camp with Food Allergies

Thoroughly researched and written by Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia, our much loved ‘Preparing for Camp with Food Allergies’ has been transformed into an e-book, freely available for all to use!

The book is a guide for parents, schools and camps.

It is divided into three comprehensive sections packed with concise and easy-to-understand information on how you can manage food allergy in a camp setting.

The e-book contents were previously reviewed by our Medical Advisory Board so it is packed with information you can trust.
