Volunteers, have you joined a team?

Gales Creek Camp is volunteer-driven. No matter what your skill set is, we probably need your help!

Help wake up camp from a long, wet winter.

We'll start cleanup at 9am sharp and work until about noon. Make sure to wear your work clothes and bring your can-do attitude. Lunch is provided!

At noon, we put away the tools and kickoff summer with an Open House. New families, veteran families, and all supporters are welcome. We'll lunch, play a few games and raffle some of our new Camp Store merchandise, too!"

Interested in being an arts and crafts volunteer?

Are you good with your hands and with kids? Are you a maker who wants to share your passion? We need you! No art talent or experience necessary. Our projects are designed for success, no matter what your art background (but you do have to pass a background check ;-).

Alumni, are you connected?

If you went to camp, worked at camp, or have some other meaningful connection to camp, we want you back! This camp was made by you, and we want you to stay connected.

If you've lost touch, or if you know someone who has, click here and let's catch up.

But here's the big thing. We're doing a first-ever ALUMNI CAMP for adults. That's right, get ready to re-live the good old days of summer camp. This 21+ camp will have you acting like your old self, complete with campfire skits, field games, and GCC's beloved creek and swimming pool.

This is an opportunity for you to A) go back to camp and B) support the place that changed your life because it's a fundraiser!

Basically, you fundraise to go back to camp. Tell your story by creating your own webpage to share with family and friends. Let the world know how much camp meant to you and let them help you make it possible for the next generation of kids growing up with type 1 to go, too.

If you've ever fundraised to participate in a run or walk, it's like that--only you don't have to run or walk. Just join us by the pool!
