About

MDA SEEKS VOLUNTEERS FOR 2017 SUMMER CAMP! The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) is searching for volunteers who are looking for a rewarding and memorable experience this summer to join their summer camp. Volunteer counselors are needed to assist young people with neuromuscular diseases and help them enjoy a fun-filled week at MDA summer camp, which will take place from August 12th - August 18th at Easter Seals Camp Hemlocks in Hebron, CT. Camp will be here before you know it and we need volunteers to sign up now! Applicants must be at least 16 years old and able to lift and care for a young person between the ages of 6 and 17. As a volunteer counselor, one will have the opportunity to become a close companion to a camper affected by neuromuscular disease and help them with daily activities such at eating, bathing and dressing. Counselors will also assist campers with recreational activities such as arts and crafts, swimming, and adapted sports. "MDA summer camp is a special week of the year when children with neuromuscular disease can enjoy themselves in true peer groups and can participate in full range outdoor activities adapted to their abilities. Besides being great fun, camp helps youngsters grow and develop emotionally and socially-- it’s truly the highlight of the year, for both campers and volunteers." Volunteering as a counselor at MDA summer camp is a rewarding and life-changing experience. The friendships formed and the memories created will last forever. To apply online or learn about other ways to support MDA’s summer camp program, call your local MDA office at 203-248-6500. Additional information about volunteering at MDA summer camp is available online at www.mda.org. For more information, contact Nicole Ginolfi at 203-248-6500 or nginolfi@mdausa.org.
