A nationwide network of approximately 80 MDA-sponsored summer camp sessions offers a wide range of programs for young people with neuromuscular diseases. Activities, designed for children who have limited mobility or who use wheelchairs and geared to the abilities of campers, range from outdoor sports such as swimming, boating, baseball and horseback riding to less physically demanding programs like arts and crafts and talent shows. At most camps, counselors work one-on-one with campers on a 24-hour basis.
