MDF Launches All-New Summer Camp for JOAs!

As part of MDF's 2019 JOA program initiative, we are launching an away camp experience for adults ages 18+ living with juvenile-onset myotonic dystrophy (This camp is exclusive to juvenile-onset adults). Our JOA community is invited to Easterseals' Timber Pointe Outdoor Center in Hudson, Illinois, on beautiful Lake Bloomington for 5 days and 4 nights beginning August 4th. Join other MDF JOA community members as we horseback ride, canoe, fish, try out the zipline, roast marshmallows and enjoy a terrific summer camping experience.
