Event Time and Date
The Muscular Dystrophy Association is seeking volunteer camp counselors for their annual MDA Summer Camp. Camp dates are June 10-16 2017
MDA hosts a week-long, overnight summer camp, where children with neuromuscular diseases take part in activities such as swimming, arts & crafts, adaptive sporting activities, and many other fun social events! This is the one week of the year that the children can just focus on being a kid, making new friends and having FUN, no matter the physical challenges that they may face.
Adult volunteers (18 and older) are paired with campers on a “one to one” basis, ensuring that the camp experience is individualized to the needs of each child.
Since neuromuscular diseases in young children disproportionately affect boys, they have an exceptional need for male counselors.
The MDA summer camp volunteer process includes a completed camp application, an interview with an MDA staff member, a reference check, a criminal background check and a completed physical by your medical professional within the past 12 months.
Applications (including all supporting documents) are due May 1, 2017
