Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bakery to Award 20 Gluten-Free Kids with Summer Camp Scholarships through 2nd Annual Happy Camper Contest


The official start of summer might be months away, but Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bakery is already excited to help kids who eat gluten-free pack their bags for some summer fun. For the second year, Rudi’s Gluten-Free is awarding 10 kids the chance to gather ‘round the campfire at a gluten-free summer camp with a Happy Camper Scholarship. New this year, the brand will also award 10 kids in Canada the opportunity to attend a gluten-free summer camp up north.

“At Rudi’s Gluten-Free, we’re all about living life to the fullest while giving back to the community of fans we’ve grown to cherish,” said Doug Radi, senior vice president of marketing and sales for Rudi’s Organic Bakery. “Kids—and their parents at home—shouldn’t have to worry about what they eat at summer camp. Instead, they should be able to focus on exploring and developing an adventurous spirit. We’re proud to have the opportunity to help 20 kids have their summer camp dreams come true.”

From Feb. 18 – March 18, 2014, parents with eligible children ages 8-17, can enter the Happy Camper contest by “liking” Rudi’s Gluten-Free on Facebook and helping their child submit a 100-word statement on what makes him or her special. Winners will be notified by April 1, 2014, to allow them plenty of time to plan for the summer camp experience of a lifetime.

Not only is Rudi’s Gluten-Free committed to baking high-quality breads and baked goods free of GMOs and full of flavor, but the brand is also committed to giving back to the gluten-free community. Rudi’s Gluten-Free is proud to support kids and let them enjoy a carefree summer without worrying about what they eat. Parents of Happy Camper scholarship winners can also rest easy knowing their son or daughter is having a safe, joyful experience fueled with yummy and delicious gluten-free foods.

Winning campers in the US can look forward to an experience at places like Camp Weekaneatit in Georgia where campers swim, show off their skills in talent shows and have fun playing team sports, or at Gluten-Free Fun Camp in Minnesota where campers have dance parties, play capture the flag, and hike with the nature club.
