MDA Camp was one of the best weeks I have ever had. While at camp you get a sense of a family atmosphere that brings everyone together. The staff came up with many ideas so everyone could be involved in the different activities. Everyone was so inspiring; it was truly a life changing week. One of the campers I had in my cabin gave the other counselors and I a bracelet on the last day of camp. Now, five months later, I still have and wear the bracelet each and every day. It is a constant reminder of the wonderful experience I had at camp with the outstanding volunteers and wonderful kids. It also reminds me of the very special cabin I had the chance to meet and get to know. Those ladies will always have a special place in my heart and I will never forget that incredible and inspiring week. I would recommend everyone to go volunteer for this event. You truly don't understand the full grasp of everything till you have experienced it for yourself. - Brooke N.
