You can also try contacting the JDRF, ADA and any local diabetes association in your area to see. Be warned, they usually look for certain qualifications like nurses, doctors, certified coaches, chefs, etc. There are some legal reasons for most of the people who come in contact with the kids but there are also behind the scenes jobs like maintenance and the like. Fund raising for camps is also quite important because most rely on donations since any fees don't cover the costs.
