PGL camp with allergies(2 Posts)
Dd is 9 and has the chance to go on a PGL camp in september. She is allergic to white fish and even the smell gives her a reaction. I admit I’m over protective but I feel so worried about letting her go. It is 3 hours away from home. She has also had a few hive reactions but I can’t work out what has caused it. Aibu to not stop her going?
I would absolutely let her go.
They will be well used to dealing with kids with allergies and will have robust procedures in place. I shouldn't have thought white fish was a particularly difficult allergen to work around.
I assume she has an epipen etc? This will be a great opportunity for her to gain confidence in managing her allergy herself in a safe environment.
There are some useful resources available you could provide to PGL if that would help you feel more confident e.g. https://allergynorthwest.nhs.uk/resources/allergy-leaflets/fish-allergy/
