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.
- Most volunteers have an interest in pre-med, PT, OT, nursing, social work, etc.
- Volunteers counselor receive 144 service hours.
- Volunteers must be 16 years or older and be able to pass a background check and physical.
