Celiac Strong Camp Founder, 2014
Sabrina DeVos founded Celiac Strong in 2014. She is from the Rochester NY area, and wanted to bring an experience like this close to home. DeVos was officially diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003, at the age of six.
At the age of 16, DeVos developed Celiac Strong for her Girl Scout Gold Award Project and received the award in 2014. She started Girl Scouts when she was in kindergarten, and is now a lifetime member of the organization.
DeVos' first summer camp experience was in 2006 at Camp Celiac, located in Rhode Island (which is about eight hours away from Rochester, NY). She attended the camp every year until 2014, when she aged out. DeVos loved the experience so much that she wanted to share it closer to home for kids in this area. She believes other children should experience the joy of having a few of worry-free days and created a place where they can just be themselves.
