Gluten-Free Camp for Athletes

The McCarthy Project Gluten-Free Camp for Athletes

This two day camp in Annandale, MN located on Clearwater Lake is focused entirely on athletes or families with athletes who are diagnosed with celiac disease or have a gluten intolerance.  Our hope is to create a unique atmosphere for young athletes who have to eat “that other food,” to realize that this circumstance can be turned around in a way to improve their performance.   Our  leading edge nutrition and training ideas allow young people to reach their full potential, rather than the situation becoming an hindrance. Food is made in a safe and dedicated gluten-free kitchen.    On top of that, each athlete will be challenged by the outdoor strategy and performance games, which culminates with a zipline session on the second day.

Quotes from Clients:

“Stephen worked with my daughter after a high ankle sprain.  He did more in 3 days then any other trainer had done for her in 10 days.  The methods he used to get her walking again were awesome.  Stephen is one who thinks outside the box and gets his kids back to the sports they love quickly and stronger. ” – Marit Larson, Mom of a young athlete.

“Stephen’s dedication to athletes of all ages and sport is unquestioned. He uses programs that benefit the athlete no matter the sport. I witnessed his work with a local swim team and not only did the athletes improve from the conditioning and strength, they looked forward to doing them again and again.” – Colby Fuller, youth coach
