Urgent Need: Adult volunteers for MDA Camp at Camp Twin Lakes

Additional male and female volunteers are needed to accommodate all of the children who have applied to attend MDA Camp at Camp Twin Lakes in Rutledge, Georgia, the week of June 24. Please share and apply if you are able to help!

Adult volunteers (18+) are needed for this summer's Muscular Dystrophy Association camp session at Camp Twin Lakes in Rutledge, Georgia. The camp will be held the week of June 24, but despite significant efforts, the camp has not yet reached the number of volunteers needed to accommodate all campers who have applied.

A message from MDA Camp:

Please be advised that we are in a final push of an all-out effort to recruit quality male and female volunteers. However, if we do not have an additional 6 male and 11 female volunteers by early next week, we will need to reduce the capacity of campers we are able to accept. All these kids really need to go to camp!

If you want to volunteer, please apply as soon as possible. CLICK HERE to apply.
