MDA Summer Camp, 6/9-6/15 (E)

The MDA Summer Camp, children with neuromuscular diseases are given a week of normalcy where barriers are broken and these children can simply be kids. Each camper is assigned to one volunteer camp counselor so that we have a 1-on-1 ratio.  Volunteer camp counselors help their campers with everything from camp activities (such as fishing, canoeing, softball) to routine daily tasks (such as dressing, showering, toileting) and will also receive training to assist with activities such as wheelchair transfers, physical therapy, and more! If you are interested please contact Ashley Mauck, Health Care Services Coordinator for the Central Virginia MDA, at 804-285-2961. Camp will be June 9-15, 2012.
