We have two different camp programs that are located on 400 wooded acres in Wisconsin Dells, Respite Camp and Camp Wawbeek. Even though these programs are separate, the staff works closely together to provide the best services to the campers.
Respite Camp serves individuals age three to adult with moderate to severe disabilities. The campers have a variety of different diagnosis such as: autism, cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, developmental disabilities, and behavioral issues. Staff and volunteers are paired up one on one with a camper and are responsible for taking care of all personal needs. This may include: dressing, changing, helping in the restroom, feeding, lifts and transfers, assisting with activities and making sure campers are having a great time! Respite Camp runs year round and has weekend sessions available during the school year. Please see our website for more information.
Camp Wawbeek works with individuals age 7 to adult with varying abilities and are able to function in small group settings. Many of the campers at Camp Wawbeek need a little assistance in creating positive social interactions or assistance in personal care throughout the day. Many campers do not need any assistance, but enjoy being at a place where they are just like everyone else! Campers look forward to this vacation all year round!
Easter Seals Wisconsin Camps is a great place for campers to come and enjoy the outdoors while giving families time for respite. Many times we have heard how camp has positively affected the lives of campers and their families, as well as the staff that work at camp.
