VOLUNTEER

Who says only kids get to go to camp? You can join the fun by volunteering at one of our Camps. Spend a week of your summer surrounded by the joys of childhood while you get to know and love a group of kids learning valuable skills they need to live a full and healthy life. 

Learn more about the volunteering at camp and other opportunities, "Find Your Local Office" for details.

JOIN AN EVENT

We hold hundreds of events throughout the United States every year. These events help raise critical funds, increase awareness about diabetes and support the search for a cure.

Tour de Cure

Tour de Cure is a cycling event that raises awareness and critical funds for life-saving research. Ride to create a life free of diabetes and all its burdens. Ride to make sure money is never a barrier for a child to attend camp. Join a camp team to help raise funds and have fun!

STAND UP FOR AFFORDABLE INSULIN 

Insulin isn’t a luxury; it’s the difference between life and death for those who need it. Yet the cost of insulin is increasing at an alarming rate. It’s time for a change. Let’s stand together and call for action. Add your name to the petition!
