At MDA (Muscular Dystrophy Association) camp, kids with neuromuscular disease discover a world created specifically for them, and meet many other kids sharing the same needs and experiences. MDA campers dream about summer camp all year and often say its better than Christmas; some even say its changed their lives. Almost all campers agree that its “the best week of the year.”
MDA camp offers a fun and safe outdoor experience, along with opportunities to engage in a variety of activities such as horseback riding, swimming, adaptive sports, arts and crafts, camp dances and much more. In addition to all of the fun and friendship it offers, MDA camp enables campers to stretch their comfort zones and grow in independence as they spend a week away from home; permit someone other than their parents to provide personal care; and make new friends.
Sure, theres an abundance of fun and games at MDA camp, but if you talk to MDA campers, theyll tell you the real benefits come in a much subtler form the lifelong friendships, the increased self-esteem and 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.
