Win-It-Wednesday: Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bakery Prize Pack

The air is chilly and snow is still (unfortunately!) in the forecast, but summer, I promise you, is right around the corner.

And with summertime comes the memories of childhood… beach outings, barbeques, fireworks and overnight summer camp. But for those with celiac disease or a gluten-intolerance, summer camp can be challenging… and scary.

For some kids an overnight summer camp can be an apprehensive situation in itself. Throw into that mix a strict gluten-free diet, and the thought of being away from home for a whole week can be terrifying.

But there is no reason that a gluten-free diet should get in the way of kid’s having a great time at summer camp… and that is why I was so excited when I found out that Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bakery was offering scholarships to 20 kids (10 from the US and 10 from Canada) for a one-week gluten-free overnight summer camp trip!

The “Happy Camper” scholarship program is taking place from February 18th to March 18, 2014. It is easy to enter to win too. Just check out the application on Rudi’s Gluten-free Facebook page and have your kid(s) (or you) submit a 100-word essay on “what makes them special” (this should be pretty easy, right?) for a chance to win a one-week scholarship to attend a gluten-free overnight camp. Rudi’s will then select the winner’s that will have an unforgetable fun-filled and safe camp experience.

And as another bonus, Rudi’s Gluten-Free has generous offered to sponsor this week’s WIN-It-Wednesday on!

Two (2) lucky winners will each win a prize pack of THREE (yes, 3!) FREE product coupons for Rudi’s Gluten-Free items. One (1) winner will be randomly selected from the entries received before Tuesday, March 4, 2014 at 11:59 PM EST, and one (1) more winner will be randomly selected to win from the entries received between Wednesday, March 5 and Tuesday, March 11, 2014 at 11:59PM EST. SO – make sure you enter to win two times!

How can you win?

Reply to this blog and tell us (in a sentence or two) why your kids, grandkids, nieces/nephews, etc. are special. (Me? Their caring and upbeat attitudes always put me in a great mood!)

(Please note: If you leave a comment on this blog post you are only entering to win the Rudi’s prize pack. To enter the camp scholarship contest you must enter on Rudi’s Facebook page!)

Good luck, always be a Happy Camper… and as always,
Be Free!

    I have a son who was born autistic (at age 8 he is 98% recovered) who has been through 8 years of therapies/treatments/procedures. He also has food allergies to gluten dairy soy bananas and many other foods. His optimistic attitude has amazed me. So many time throughout his life I just have worn out to the point of tears and he is always there. Younger when he was unable to speak it use to be just his hand upon my arm. Now it’s hugs and and a I love you encouraging word from him. He has helped me more than I have helped him. He is always the encourager no matter the situation.

  17. Katheryn Says:

    All of my kids are so supportive of each other’s dreams & of their limitations. Even tho we only have two gluten free and one casein free all six of us remember and cook accordingly. If we are out and about they watch out for hidden ingredients. We all take martial arts and since I am the newest student & the lowest rank they help me train and learn my forms.

  18. Marci Says:

    This a reply for the Rudi’s prize pack. My kids are grown and gone, so we don’t need the Camp prize. The prize pack is too good to not try for . I am the one with Celiac, and love Rudi’s. I crave mexican food, and found out Rudi’s Tortilla’s make the best burritos, to premake and freeze for on the go snack. All the other tortilla’s I have tried crack and break, how depressing. Rudi’s has been my sanity saver.

    My nephews are special because they call once a week to see how we are doing.

  27. TXEdie Says:

    Grandchildren provide effortless enjoyment with no responsibility or judgements. They are there to enjoy and love … and we can send them home to their parents when the day is done. Perfect!

  33. Susan M Says:

    My son is about to graduate college and I am so proud of him and how hard he has worked.

  34. TXEdie Says:

    Camp is an elusive dream for many children with Celiac disease. Although they would love the swimming, crafts, bon fires, stories and new friendships — wheat in the bread, buns and other baked goods served at breakfast, lunch and dinner is an impossible diet for children with Celiac disease. Enter RUDI’s! The gluten-free products that look and taste like so many of the everyday foods that have wheat can make camping a possible and positive experience for all campers. Hurray for RUDI’s and thank you!!!

  35. Jennifer Carner Says:

    My daughter means the world to me. She always makes me smile and we stick together through the good and bad times.

  36. elaine Says:

    I am a gluten free gal!!!! I would love a chance to try this. I have not had bread in over 15 yrs, due to stomach issues. I had no idea this kind of product was out there! I can not wait to try bread again!!!!!!

  37. Dawn Morris Says:

    My kids are special because they are compassionate, caring and kind. They listen to advice my husband and I give on they type of person they want to be. They apply this to their behavior and actions in how they treat others. I couldn’t be more proud of the yound adults they have become!

  38. Michelle Says:

    My son has the best laugh, all of his teachers have mentioned it to my husband and I. It is unique, infectious, and you cannot help but smile when you hear him laughing! He can always make me smile!

  39. renee Says:

    My youngest daughter always says “Mom, you are the bestest mom I have ever had” she is so sweet all the time, and my oldest is always looking out for me and knows when something is wrong she will comfort me.
