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.

Yes, these are the Camp Directors.
