Having Fun & Gaining Confidence

Gales Creek Camp is a place where children and teens gain confidence in managing their diabetes. Our goal is to help each child grow toward living an independent life. Campers learn to test themselves and give injections. They learn how food and exercise are linked with insulin, and how sports, illness, and stress interact with diabetes.

Perhaps the most important of all, Gales Creek Campers learn that diabetes doesn't have to prevent them from living active, satisfying lives. Staff members, who have diabetes themselves, model healthy habits and demonstrate that children with diabetes go on to college, enter the work force, and become successful adults. Camp programs offered are a Diabetes Camp for children ages 6-16 and a Family Camp for children 5-12.
