Ben Schussler loves to fish. So when he’s at MDA summer camp, he heads for the dock and casts his line as often as possible. “I catch two or three fish a day,” 8-year-old Ben boasts with glee in his little voice. Fishing is not a particularly unusual passion for a boy his age, although in Ben’s case, it isn’t something he thought he would — or could — ever enjoy.

Through the eyes of young artists
In our print magazine, we didn't have room to feature the many wonderful examples of summer camp-related artwork from the MDA Art Collection. So we offer you this special Quest Extra slideshow, "Images of MDA Summer Camp," showcasing selected paintings, drawings, and pottery from a wide range of young artists from across the country.
Right now, your local MDA staff is busy planning the theme for this year’s MDA summer camp. Hollywood Game Show … Jammin’ in the Jungle … Wild, Wild West — there are dozens of great ideas out there.
But you know, it really doesn’t matter what the theme is, because the underlying idea at camp is always the same: TOTAL FUN.
