MDA Summer Camp

MDA Summer Camp provides thousands of kids with muscular dystrophy and related muscle-debilitating diseases "the best week of the year." At MDA Summer Camp, kids are living beyond limits in a place where anything is possible. It's a week where they’re free to enjoy adventures like horseback riding, swimming and fishing, develop lifelong friendships, and build self-confidence and independence.

MDA Summer Camp

June 18-24, 2017 will be our annual MDA Summer Camp at Camp Cheerful in Strongsville.

This week long, overnight summer camp is for youth ages 6-17 that are diagnosed with a neuromuscular disease.  Each camper is paired up with a volunteer counselor “buddy” for the week.  The buddy acts as the camper’s muscles and helps provide assistance for the camper in whatever capacity it is needed.  Some examples are:  playing sports, brushing their teeth, swimming, and meeting other daily needs as needed.
