Camp Promise to Provide Second Chance at Summer Recreation for Children with Muscular Dystrophy

Boston, MA (PRWEB) June 25, 2009 -- In immediate response to the Muscular Dystrophy Association's decision to cancel the remainder of its annual summer camp program due to the H1NH virus, more commonly known as the "swine flu" Camp Promise, today announced its efforts to provide an alternative to those children who have already signed up and for those that would like to sign up to attend.

Camp Promise, based out Bedford, NH is lead by volunteers, parents and supervised by accredited physicians. The health, safety and general well-being of these children is taken very seriously. Camp Promise follows all protocols to prevent the spread of any and all potentially infectious disease. All campers, staff and volunteers will be screened before and during the camp session.

"As parents of children with neuromuscular disorders we possess a heightened awareness of all potential risks that may endanger our children," said Natalie Gaudenzi, parent and advocate of Camp Promise. "Myself -- along with 18 other parents -- have given careful consideration to this threat and believe that the reward for our children as well as the entire family is far greater than risk of swine flu or that of any other risk we encounter in our daily lives. Many of these children have been looking forward to this experience for a long time and some-due to age restrictions-may never have this opportunity again."

Camp promise will be held at Camp Allen in Bedford, New Hampshire from July 5 through July 10, 2009 and would like parents to be aware that there is a risk of contracting the virus, however, the camp staff and medical staff at Camp Promise will undertake every precaution to prevent the start and spread of the virus.

Camp Promise will begin raising money today to help
