Make a lasting impact on a child's life by being their volunteer, guardian and best friend at Summer Camp.
The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) is a national non-profit dedicated to serving individuals with Muscular Dystrophy diseases.
The Utah chapter of MDA hosts an annual Summer Camp each August (see dates). MDA Summer Camp is divided into two separate, overnight sessions for children ages 6-12 and youth ages 13-17. Camp is held at Camp Kostolopus in Emigration Canyon near Salt Lake City, Utah.
Each camper with Muscular Dystrophy is paired with a volunteer for the length of the camp. The camper and volunteer will then participate together in various activities throughout the week, eat together, and sleep near each other in cabins.
