Camp isn’t a place, it’s a feeling

It’s a week of fun, but it’s so much more than that. Friendships are built, independence is fostered, life skills are developed, self-esteem is encouraged, and connections are made with nature and the outdoors. MDA Virtual Camp is an online program that brings the magic of camp to campers virtually.


What is virtual camp?

This summer may look different, but we are sure it is going to be a BLAST! This year, MDA is bringing camp to YOU! There will be things that that feel familiar – meeting new friends, feeling inspired, enjoying arts & crafts and activities, and more. There will also be some new and exciting elements that we can’t wait for you to see! Be ready to meet fellow campers from across the country, try some new things and HAVE FUN all from the comfort of your home. Are you ready to join us for the Great Escape?

A look back at 2020

Lily had a BLAST today as a virtual camper! She was so excited about another child she met with CMT Type 1A and found a friend who loves the same book series. She said she can’t believe the connections she has made all over the country today!”

My 11 year old daughter has SMA type 2 and has attended camp this week and is absolutely loving it. While she still misses in person camp, she has been excited at what new activities await each day this week and genuinely enjoyed and appreciated the connection with her fellow campers, the counselors and MDA staff.”
