    Gales Creek Camp Foundation

    Offices Located at 6950 SW Hampton St, Suite 242, Tigard, OR 97223

    Gales Creek Camp is a place where children and teenagers with type 1 diabetes from all over the Pacific Northwest have a blast while connecting with other kids living with the same challenges. Our goal is to help each child grow toward living an active, independent life. In addition to having a traditional summer camp experience filled with friendships and antics—running, swimming, hiking, field games, arts, drama, campfires, and all around summer fun—Gales Creek Campers start to learn some of the self-care habits that will help them grow into healthy adults. They may learn to test themselves and give injections, and how food and exercise are linked to insulin. They may learn how sports, illness and stress interact with diabetes. Ultimately, we want them to gain confidence to begin to manage their own bodies.
