Activity Group – Children
Designed for children and provides social interaction, activities for varying interests and abilities, an emphasis on having fun, meeting new people and making new friends, as well as relaxing in a warm environment.
These activities happen both on and off site and are facilitated and funded by MDA. Activities include trips to the zoo, Science Works Museum, going shopping or having a pizza lunch which usually involves lots of laughs. These activities often form the initial contact MDA has with the children and lays groundwork for building familiar relationships and encouraging attendance at CampMDA in the future. It is also a chance for the children to make friends with others, who they will then re-connect with at camp. We find the children maintain the communication via email and texting in between meetings. Carers are also always welcome.
