CORPUS CHRISTI - The South Texas chapter of MDA is looking for volunteers counselors for its 2013 Summer Camp.
The annual event is held at the beautiful Camp Aranzazu near Rockport, a facility built specifically to accomodate children with physical disabilities and allow them to participate in activities they would otherwise not be able to enjoy.
Archery, swimming, canoeing, hockey, and a ropes course are just a few of the activities.
Each camper ages 6-17 is matched one-on-one with a counselor who helps with any necessary lifting, transferring, eating and personal hygiene.
Counselors are cheerleaders and role models for the campers with whom they are paired.
Counselors help campers foster independence by encouraging them to do the things they can and assisting where they need help!
Specifically, MDA is looking for males age 18 or older to help out.
Any interested in applying can call 210-650-3181 and talk with Coley Claybaugh or Nora Murdock, or email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com for more information.
