MDA Summer Camp is a magical place where anything is possible for these special kids, but MDA needs caring people to volunteer as camp counselors. They serve as a "buddy" for the week and participate in activities with the campers, push wheelchairs, lift and transfer youngsters, provide assistance with daily living activities as needed.

In addition to bringing joy to our campers, this is an amazing opportunity for students to gain hands-on experience in education, recreation, family social sciences and medical professions and a week of experience working with children living with neuromuscular disease, as well as 140 volunteer hours. MDA staff and the camp medical team provide all the medical training needed for the week. Medical staff is on site for the entire week. Food and accommodation is provided. To apply, please call the MDA office at 415-673-7500. You will receive a link for online application. Interview with MDA staff and background check are required. Currently we have high demand for male counselors to care for male campers between age 10 and 17.

We truly can’t do this without the help of caring individuals like you! Call the MDA team today and learn more about the MDA Summer Camp Volunteer program.
