Before joining I spoke to the leaders about his allergies to peanuts, nuts, and soy. They have been very good, I even go grocery shopping with them for the camp outs to make sure my son is safe. They also text me if they have a question about a food. Very rarely an unsafe food does come in, but my son is a good sport and understands, when we come home, I let him have a safe treat instead.
