The Muscular Dystrophy Association seeks volunteer counselors to care for youngsters with muscular dystrophy and related diseases at the Arizona MDA Summer Camp, from May 31-June 5 for ages 12-17, and June 7-June 12 for ages 6-11 at Whispering Hope Ranch in Payson, Ariz.

Volunteer counselors must be at least 16 years old. Each counselor is a companion to an MDA camper, helping him or her with camp activities (sports, horseback riding, arts & crafts, etc.) and day-to-day activities (eating, bathing and dressing).

Also, the association is seeking physicians, nurses, emergency medical technicians, physical therapists and other medical professionals to volunteer for the camp’s medical staff. Medical staff members supervise and maintain the health and well-being of all camp participants.

To volunteer, contact the local MDA office by calling 480-496-4530 or e-mail
