Work at Camp

Are You Ready?

Get ready for the best summer of your life! Gales Creek Camp hires nearly 30 staff members every summer. For 7 weeks you will share the responsibility of caring for more than 60 children per week who have type 1 diabetes. If you aren't familiar with type 1, that's OK! You will learn about diabetes. You will learn about working with children of all ages, kindergarten through high school. You will learn about being a part of a team and you will learn all of this while having fun, making life-long friendships, and having an unforgettable summer!

The 2024 season starts June 23 and goes through August 17. Housing, meals, and a weekly stipend are included. All staff get scheduled time off during the week and are off duty (and free to leave camp) from Friday afternoon to Sunday morning.  Plus, you'll leave with some sweet camp gear that's made just for you.

We have counselor and CIT (Counselor in Training), medical team and nutrition team positions available each year. Click the links below to learn more. Give us a call if you have any questions: (503) 968-2267.

Applications are accepted January through June (or until all positions are filled).
