Currently a senior medical director at Ogilvy CommonHealth Medical Education, Craig Gelband has worked in the medical and pharmaceutical industries for more than 10 years. Outside of his professional pursuits, Craig Gelband stays involved with his alma mater, Duke University, and keeps in touch with his fellow alumni from Camp Chickawah.
Now closed, Camp Chickawah was an all-boys summer camp located on Island Pond in Harrison, Maine. The camp first opened in 1920 and operated for 65 years before it closed in 1985. Today, the site is occupied by the all-girls camp Fernwood Cove, but it is still considered home to the many men who spent their summers at Camp Chickawah during their childhood.
In 2007 and 2009, dozens of former campers gathered at Fernwood Cove to participate in Chickawah traditions and catch up with childhood friends. Registration recently opened for the next Camp Chickawah reunion, which will be held August 22-24, 2014, at the former Chickawah campus in Harrison.
