MDA NEEDS YOU FOR A COUNSELOR AT MDA SUMMER CAMP
Each year the Muscular Dystrophy Association sponsors a weeklong summer camp for youth age 6 to 17 diagnosed
with one of the 40+ neuromuscular diseases in MDA?s services program. This year it is July 28th - August 2nd.
MDA?s Camp is located at Manzano Mountain Retreat in Torreon, NM. This is a wonderful time for the campers ?
they get to do things that are not usually considered a normal part of their routine. They go swimming;
participate in sporting events, dance, and much, much more ? all at their own pace. At camp, they are the norm ? not
the one that is different.
Each child, whether walking or in a wheelchair, has a full-time counselor. The counselor works one-on-one
with their camper providing care and close supervision, ensuring the camper can participate in camp activities and
enjoys camp. Above all, they become the camper?s friend for the week ? and sometimes for a lifetime. We
have campers, who need to have a buddy for the week, could you please help.
Counselors need be 17 years old and above, have three references and be able to pass a background check.
This looks great on a college application or your resume.
