Where are you from? BC - same club as Adrian? I am thinking of going there in July.
Good luck with your fundraising or job search. Everyone I know with few exceptions finances their own trips. See if your city has an athletic fund to support young athletes. My city does, however you have to be at the level where you are going off to a major competition like the Junior Worlds.

I work at a high school in PA. Many of our athletic booster clubs raise funds through various means. I think the most effective is through the sale of subs and chicken barbecues. Food sales are always effective because everyone eats at least 2 times a day! My son just had a sub sale for his little league baseball team. We were asked to sell 20 subs. The subs are as good as anything you get at Subway and sold for $5. I think the gross receipts are split 50/50 with the sub maker. This means if you sell $100 of subs, the club would make $50. The more kids you have selling, the better.
Chicken barbecues are also very popular with many non-profit groups in this area. I would bet you would never have to travel more than 10 miles from my home on any given Saturday and you would find a chicken barbecue. People set up a huge barbecue pit and cook them right there with a small baked potato. They also usually include a roll. For $7 or so, you get half a chicken, a baked potato and a roll. Profits are usually 50/50.
Our baseball team probably has the best fundraiser in the school. They use the school's gym for a craft fair. The vendors are charged to rent their spot to set up their booth. Hundreds of people come from all over to this craft fair. This is the only fund raiser that the baseball team does all year, so they only really have to work for about 2 days collectively on it. But they make really good money by doing it. They have done it now for something like 20 years. It just keeps getting better and better.
If you have any type of a local street fair, see if you can set up a booth and sell hot dogs, french fries, soda pop or something unique. Often you can make significant money that way too.
