HEBRON- The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) is searching for men who are looking for a rewarding and memorable experience this summer to join their summer camp. Volunteer counselors are needed to assist young people with neuromuscular diseases and help them enjoy a fun-filled week at MDA summer camp, which will take place from Aug. 3-9 at Camp Hemlocks in Hebron. With less than 60 days until camp begins we need volunteers to sign up now! There has been an overwhelming response from female applicants, so at this time, only male applicants are asked to apply. Applicants must be at least 18 years old and able to lift and care for a young person between the ages of six and 17. As a volunteer counselor, one will have the opportunity to become a close companion to a camper affected by neuromuscular disease and help them with daily activities such at eating, bathing and dressing. Counselors will also assist campers with recreational activities such as arts and crafts, swimming, and adapted sports. To obtain a volunteer application or learn about other ways to support MDA’s summer camp program, call your local MDA office at NUMBER. Additional information about volunteering at MDA summer camp is available online at www.mda.org. For more information, contact Casey Bilodeau or Karen Mickley-Gomez at 203-248-6500 or email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
