MDA Summer Camp In-Person Update

The Muscular Dystrophy Association’s top priority is the health and safety of our campers, volunteers, and staff. After having made the difficult decision in both 2020 and 2021 to hold virtual summer camp programming but not to hold in-person summer camp programs, we are very excited to be planning in-person MDA Summer Camps in 2022.

In regard to Covid safety measures, MDA will follow local, state and facility guidelines and may also have measures specific to our camp program in place. All guidelines and procedures will be developed in consultation with MDA medical advisors, to ensure the safety of all camp participants.

We plan to return to in-person programming in some areas of the country. MDA will be adding locations back in phases to ensure the safety of campers, volunteers, and staff. At the same time, MDA will continue to offer a virtual camp experience for those who are unable to, or would rather, attend in person.


MDA is preparing to launch the 2022 MDA Summer Camp registration. Please make note of some key dates of importance:

  • Early February – MDA will communicate with the Camp Community to share the 2022 MDA Camp locations.
  • February 15 – MDA will open registration for the 2022 MDA Summer Camp season.

We are sharing this information in stages to allow families to review the list of locations, assess their interest, and evaluate 2022 MDA Camp locations, ahead of registration opening. As MDA builds back our in-person footprint of camp options, it is possible that locations will fill to capacity and wait-lists will be implemented. We want to ensure we share information ahead of registration opening so families can understand options and key dates in advance.
