Updates Regarding the Return to In-Person MDA Summer Camp

MDA Virtual Summer Camp

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?

While MDA is excited to build back in-person camp, many members of the MDA community enjoyed virtual camp as well! We launched virtual camp in response to the pandemic, but feedback received from the community showed an appreciation for the accessibility virtual camp offered. Meeting new friends, feeling inspired, enjoying arts & crafts and camp activities, all delivered to your home, is a great additional option for a camp program. For those interested in taking part, we will meet fellow campers from across the country, try new things, and have fun, all from the comfort of your home. Are you ready to join MDA Virtual Camp?

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.”
