Are you at least 18 years old and have a passion for working with kids and teens with type 1 Diabetes?
We would love to have you attend our programs and volunteer your time, either in the “field” (e.g. mountain, racetrack, ocean or wherever our camp takes place) or at our “home base,” assisting us with our registration and coordination needs!
You don’t necessarily have to have type 1 diabetes to volunteer at camp, however we do appreciate volunteers who have a knowledge of what type 1 diabetes is and how to manage it. If you don’t have T1D, you will be paired with a coach that either has T1D or knows enough about it to lead a group and supervise kids.
