About

The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) is looking volunteer summer camp counselors! This is a summer camp for the children MDA serves living with muscular dystrophy and other muscle diseases. MDA camp features sports, swimming, campfires, dances, and more! Each camper is paired with their own counselor for the week.

Camp is not only a place to have fun, but it is also a place of understanding, confidence, and hope. When asked their favorite holiday, our kids respond with summer camp!

Camp provides excellent practical experience for individuals in medical school, physical and occupational therapy programs, and nursing programs. However, no prior experience is required to be a part of this amazing opportunity.

We are currently looking for volunteers to make camp possible for Summer 2017. You must be 16 years or older to apply. You must be able to lift at least 50 lbs.

MDA Summer Camps for the NY/NJ area are held during the first three weeks of August 2017 (specific dates to be announced next month).

Interested or know someone who would be? Please akeenan@mdausa.org for more information.
