Easter Seals Wisconsin
– For over 90 years, Easter Seals Wisconsin has provided children and adults with disabilities a unique camping experience that allows campers to live without limits during their time at camp. Each year, 2,000 campers, each with a different set of needs and abilities, attend camp to participate in a wide variety of social and recreational activities in a welcoming, accessible environment.
Easter Seals Wisconsin offers two camp experiences that cater to specific needs. Camp Wawbeek welcomes both children and adults who are excited to try new things in a fun, inclusive environment. Wawbeek campers have the opportunity to try high ropes courses and zip lining. Campers gain a sense of independence by trying new activities without limitations. The second camp experience is Respite Camp, where campers with several severe disabilities can go to receive individualized care while enjoying a camp experience mirroring that of their peers. Respite campers enjoy playing on the slip’n’slide and making new friends while allowing their attentive 24- hour caregivers relaxing time away, knowing their loved ones are having fun in a safe, nurturing environment.
