Adult Camp Retreat

Adult Camp Retreat

for adults living with type 1 diabetes

Held annually the last weekend of August

You already know the benefits kids get from camp. Now we’re bringing those same benefits to adults with type 1 and their loved ones! Welcome to your very own grown-up (slightly) summer camp experience.

  • Camp activities include optional hikes, games, archery, swimming, campfire, and art!

  • Breakout sessions on living and thriving with type 1, research updates, and other important topics around life with type 1.

  • New friends and connections who get it.

  • Chef-prepared gourmet dinner with some of Oregon’s best wine, beer, kombucha, and carb-free beverages.

  • Giveaways and prizes. Plus free GCC swag for all attendees!

Anyone living with type 1 can attend, whether you have T1D yourself or you live with or love someone who does. Spouses, families and besties are welcome. Bring friends or make them there. Must be 21+.

Come just for Saturday or stay all weekend. Adult Camp Retreat programming will run Saturday through Sunday morning. Our shared-space cabins will be available for you to make yourself at home. Don't want to stay the full weekend? No problem. Join us on Saturday and you'll still head home with plenty of fun memories!

This is a community of people who share the same daily challenges. Get inspired and do some good.

All proceeds from this event go into our summer camp programs for kids, so by participating in this weekend, you're also helping to send children growing up with type 1 diabetes to a full week of summer camp!

This fantastic all-inclusive weekend is just $150 per person.

If you want to make an additional donation to the program, you will have an opportunity during registration check out or at dinner on Saturday night.

Even if you can't actually make it to Adult Camp this year, you can still support Gales Creek Camp through this event. You can make a donation directly to camp here. If you can donate an item to be used as a prize at the Camp Retreat, please email us here. It will add to the excitement and we can promote you or your company! It all goes to the same place: the campers.
