Counselors needed for disabled campers

December 14, 2002

The Muscular Dystrophy Assn. is accepting applications to fill

volunteer positions as summer camp counselors for its camp July 6 to

12 at Loyola Mary- mount University in Los Angeles.

Camp counselors must be at least 16, and physically able to lift a

child. Each counselor is assigned to serve as a companion for a

camper -- a young person between 6 and 21 who is affected by a

neuromuscular disease. Counselors help their campers with daily


activities such as feeding, bathing and dressing, and in recreational

activities such as arts and crafts and swimming.

To obtain an application or learn about other ways to support the

summer camp program, call the local MDA office at 848-7000 or its

national headquarters at (800) 572-1717.
