Healthcare

Medical care is provided on campus by two licensed practical nurses. Pediatricians are also on retainer for consultation and diagnosis and are authorized to distribute prescription medication with the consent of the parent and/or guardian. In the event of a medical emergency, campers will be taken to Valley Baptist Medical Center, which is located just three miles from the campus.

Communication

Campers maintain a full and exciting schedule, which does not allow for routine communication. However, during downtime, campers are encouraged to write letters to their family members and friends so they can share the experience with them. In turn, parents and other family members are encouraged to send  letters of encouragement to the campers. MMA encourages parents and family members to keep up with with the campers via MMA's Facebook page, Flickr page and blog.

Graduation Events

On the last day of the summer camp program, all campers participate in a graduation parade that takes place in front of the Iwo Jima Monument. After the parade, a graduation ceremony is held in front of the barracks. Each camper is formally presented with his certificate of completion.
