The Foundation is again proud to present its Life-Enhancing Summer Retreat for young adults with Muscular Dystrophy (ages 16-22). This 4-day Retreat provides opportunity for a select group of young adults with MD a chance to learn valuable life skills while enjoying the great outdoors.

Set in the beautiful foothills of Yosemite, daily activities include swimming, adaptive sports, accessible hiking trails, arts and crafts, teambuilding, and daily sessions designed to provide empowering life skills. These daily sessions will cover topics such as Independent Living, Higher Education, Employment, Dating & Relationships, Managing Healthcare, etc.
