The world has changed a lot since Gales Creek Camp started 65 years ago...
But camp is still pretty much the same.
Now's your chance to help keep the tradition alive  and maybe get back into the action.
Support Camp at Adult and Alumni Camp August 25-26, 2018

Gales Creek Camp exists because of people like you  people who understand how tough it can be to grow up with the everyday challenges and uncertainties of type 1 diabetes. Maybe you were one of those kids once, too.

If you went to camp  or even if you never made it to camp  you are welcome. This is a "camp" for adults who are touched by type 1 diabetes, and it's a way to give kids the gift of their own summer camp.

  • Raise the minimum and you've helped keep camp affordable to all families.
  • Raise $470 and you've sent a kid to camp.
  • Raise more than that and you're ensuring camp will be around until type 1 diabetes is no longer a threat to children.

This 21+ event is packed with a camp activity schedule, including plenty of pool time . It's also got camp celebrities, giveaways, beer with s'mores, type 1 talks, and exclusive free GCC swag that's not available any other way.

If you went to Gales Creek Camp, this can also be your chance to show family, friends, or your partner just what camp is about. Sign them up, too. If you're not alumni, you're guaranteed to meet new people (and after this camp you officially will be).

If you've ever fundraised to participate in a run or walk, it's like that create a fundraising page and share it. People can donate to your page but then you don't have to run or walk. Just join your friends by the pool!

For this fantastic all-inclusive weekend, the minimum donation is $150 per person, with an ultimate goal of $500 per person. That sends a kid to camp, and that's a big impact.

Even if you can't actually make it to Adult and Alumni camp, you can still support Gales Creek Camp through this event by clicking below.

Thank you for being a part of it!
