What other programs do we run?

Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

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 Duke of Ed participants 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.
