Camp Riley Service Project
Indiana, USA: May 1–3, 2013
The MDRT Foundation is partnering with Camp Riley, a recreational camp for children with physical disabilities, to help with camp improvements at its Indiana location.
MDRT volunteers are needed to help build a wooden fence for Camp Riley’s therapeutic horse-riding area at Bradford Woods in Indiana.
Volunteer openings are available for up to 20 individuals, and registrations will be secured on a first-response basis. There is no requirement for prior construction experience, only the will to help more than 250 children with physical disabilities who participate in Camp Riley’s annual recreational activities.
Camp Riley is located at Bradford Woods, a 2,500-acre outdoor recreational facility in Martinsville, Indiana. The camp serves children receiving care at Riley Hospital for Children, Indiana’s largest comprehensive children’s hospital.
Volunteers should expect to arrive in Indianapolis on the evening of Tuesday, April 30, and stay through the afternoon of Friday, May 3. The MDRT Foundation will provide breakfast, lunch and snacks during the build days. Volunteers are responsible for their own airfare and hotel costs.

“There is nothing quite like the total immersion of time with one's peers. I cannot speak highly enough of the work of the Foundation and what it offers to everyone who chooses to be involved.”
