The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) is currently preparing for its 59th Annual Summer Camp, which will run June 7-13 at the Airfield 4-H Conference Center in Wakefield, VA.
MDA Summer Camp is a week-long, overnight camp where children with neuromuscular diseases take part in activities such as swimming, arts & crafts, adaptive sporting activities, a petting zoo and many other fun social events.
Activities, entertainment and meals are generously contributed by local Virginia businesses and firefighter groups, as well as other MDA sponsors and supporters. Adult volunteers are paired with campers on a 1-to-1 basis, making the camp experience fun and accessible for all children, no matter the physical disabilities.
MDA is currently looking for volunteer camp counselors; they must be at least 18 years of age by the start of camp.
MDA is able to offer 144 hours of community service for selected volunteering. Due to a high number of male campers, MDA is in need of a significant number of male volunteers. Interested applicants will complete an application, interview, criminal background check and reference check before being selected.
Interested volunteers should immediately contact Michael Yeomans, MDA Summer Camp Coordinator, at 804-285-2961 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Application deadline is April 1.
