What other programs do we run?

MDNSW runs the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, where young people with a neuromuscular condition have the opportunity to participate in self-directed activities to earn a Bronze, Silver and Gold Award. Our “Dukies” continue to inspire us with their amazing adventures and achievements.

Priority Access

Some of our programs are quite popular. Occasionally there may be a waiting list for camps or retreats if we receive a lot of applications. To ensure the system is fair, we will assess applications based on priority. Read our Priority Access Criteria here.

Cancellation Policy

A lot of time and upfront expense goes into every MDNSW camp or retreat. Accommodation, equipment and meals all add up. Read our Cancellation Policy here.
