After the MDA Summer Camp experience, campers recall it as “the best week of the year.” With 90 camps across the country, kids with neuromuscular diseases get to have an unforgettable experience where year-round skills are developed and they have the opportunity to just be a kid! Each child is paired with a volunteer who helps them with all aspects of camp life, from fun and games to personal care and attention. Each camp provides a wide range of activities especially designed for young people who have limited mobility or use wheelchairs. Accessible activities range from outdoor sports such as swimming, boating, baseball, football and horseback riding, to less physically demanding programs like arts and crafts and talent shows.
By becoming an MDA Summer Camp sponsor, you can provide a local youngster with neuromuscular disease many special summer memories. The cost of sending one child to MDA camp is $850. As a sponsor, you will be invited to send a representative to visit the local MDA camp during our special sponsor VIP Day. You'll see firsthand the joy that summer camp creates and meet campers appreciative of your support in making camp possible.
