Staff & Board

Camp Staff

At least one full-time doctor, three nurses, and a dietitian lead the medical team at Gales Creek Camp. They work hard to monitor campers' diabetes. Since campers are very active, the professionals at camp pay special attention to dietary and insulin adjustments. Of course, the Gales Creek staff also includes well-trained counselors, all over age 18. Each counselor is required to spend a full week in training. Physicians and nurses educate the counselors about diabetes and the challenges it presents. Typically, at least a third of the counselors are former Gales Creek campers who successfully manage their own diabetes.

GCC Board of Directors

Gales Creek Camp Foundation is operated under the guidance of a volunteer board of directors. Our board is made up of past campers and counselors, parents of campers and past campers, camp physicians and passionate members of the community. The Gales Creek Camp board works year around to ensure that our services are second to none.
