MS Adventure Camp brings together children going into grades 4-12 who live in a household with someone affected by MS for summertime fun and personal growth. Campers enjoy jam-packed days filled with recreational activities, like swimming and campfires, along with special MS education programs for a truly unique and enriching camp experience.
In this caring and relaxed environment, kids can open up and connect with others who share similar life experiences. Through the laughter, s’mores and friendships, they will leave feeling empowered by their newfound MS community with memories to last a lifetime.
All MS Adventure Camp locations are open to everyone, regardless of state residency.
Volunteer for MS Adventure Camp
The success of MS Adventure Camp depends on its incredible volunteers. We welcome volunteers with a wide range of skills and provide relevant training. Volunteers must be 18 years or older. Various volunteer positions are available at each location, from support with short-term projects to serving as a counselor for the duration of camp.
All volunteers must pass a background check to participate.
