      At MDA camp, children with muscle disease discover a world designed specifically for them- meeting many other kids sharing the same needs and experiences. MDA camp offers a fun and safe outdoor experience, along with opportunities to engage in a variety of adaptive activities including horseback riding, swimming, sports, arts and crafts, camp dances and much more. In addition to all of the fun and friendship it offers, MDA camp enables campers to stretch their comfort zones and gain independence as they spend a week away from home, permit someone other than their parents to provide personal care, and make new friends. MDA campers dream about summer camp all year and often say it’s better than Christmas; some even say it’s changed their lives. Almost all campers agree that it’s "the best week of the year."

      You’re invited to apply to join the MDA team as a 2014 Summer Camp Volunteer. At MDA camp, volunteer counselors work one-on-one with campers, providing the around-the-clock care, close supervision and attention for children with muscle disease. Counselors push wheelchairs, meet the daily needs of each child, and become a youngster’s friend for a week. It’s a tall order to be an MDA camp counselor and MDA looks for people who can fulfill many specific responsibilities. This is an extremely important job and also a great way to get hands on experience and build your resume for your future career aspirations. MDA is especially in need of male camp volunteers; however, female camp volunteers are also encouraged to apply.

      The Colorado MDA Camp is held at Rocky Mountain Village Easter Seals in Empire and serves campers from Colorado and Wyoming. MDA provides pre-camp training to all camp volunteers, as you will learn how to do proper lifts and transfers, assist with campers acts of daily living and work hands on with camp medical staff. Our camp sessions are held two different weeks and we are looking for different volunteers for each week:

      Session I: June 15th - 20th (Campers ages 6 - Pre-Teen)

      Session II: June 22nd - 27th (Campers ages Pre-Teen - 17)

       Attached is the fillable application for this years camp.  We have until the end of April to get the applications filled out.

      If you are interested - please contact Rudy at 719-761-5969.
