The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) held their first Long Island camp at Camp DeWolfe this summer! Over 60 campers from across New York State attended the week-long MDA camp, between Sunday 11th August and Friday 16th August. Each camper was accompanied by a volunteer, with 1:1 ratio, in addition to support staff and medical staff! Activities included swimming in the pool, arts and crafts, nature time, sports and games, and evening programs including a dance, movie and games! Each day was a different holiday, from St Patrick’s Day to New Year’s Eve! What a blessing to have campers of all ages enjoy camp activities in the outdoor setting, in a safe community!
