Project Description

Muscular Dystrophy Summer Camps for Kids

When kids attend MDA Summer Camp, they gain independence as they spend time away from home and, more importantly, time away from their primary caregivers. They learn to accept personal care from someone other than their parents, form lifelong friendships, develop greater self-esteem and confidence, and get the chance to spend time with kids who have similar challenges. Each camp is staffed with dedicated health professionals and trained camp volunteers who meet every child’s medical and physical needs. Camp is available to kids who have been diagnosed with a type of neuromuscular disease covered by MDA’s program.
