A little background information on the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA)
is a Non Profit American organization which combats muscular dystrophy and diseases of the nervous system and muscular system. The organization was founded in 1950 by a group of concerned parents of children with muscular dystrophy. One of the great programs the MDA offers is the Summer Camp which provides thousands of kids with muscular dystrophy and related muscle-debilitating diseases “the best week of the year.” At MDA Summer Camp, kids are living beyond limits in a place where anything is possible. It’s a week where they’re free to enjoy adventures like horseback riding, swimming, fishing, develop lifelong friendships, and build self-confidence with independence. The weeklong summer camp is offered at no charge to families thanks to our support. This camp gives kids with limited muscle strength and mobility a life-changing experience in an environment without barriers. MDA Summer Camp offers a fun and safe outdoor experience, along with opportunities to engage in a variety of activities such as adaptive sports, arts & crafts, camp dances and much more. In addition to all of the fun and friendship it offers, MDA Summer Camp enables campers to stretch
their comfort zones and grow in independence as they spend a week away from home and permit someone other than their parents to provide personal care. Sure, there’s an abundance of fun and games at camp, but if you talk to MDA campers, they’ll tell you the real benefits come in a much subtler form – the lifelong friendships, the increased self-esteem, confidence, and the
chance to spend at least one week of the year in a place where physical
disabilities are the norm rather than the exception. For parents and
guardians, MDA camp provides a brief break from their roles of caregiver for
a child with neuromuscular disease. It’s a place where parents know they can
send their children for a week of summer fun and at the same time, be
assured that their child’s medical and physical needs will be met by a team
of dedicated health professionals and trained camp volunteers. MDA staff and
volunteers assume all camper care, including physical and emotional support,
allowing parents much-needed time to attend to their own needs and, in some
cases, spend some special time with the camper’s siblings.
We hope to see you all at this year’s event.
(Saturday) 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
