Camp's Description

Easter Seals Respite Services "Iím so GLAD that there is a place where kids with challenging behaviors can go and have fun since so many places are simply not able to support them! Thank goodness you all exist!" Taking care of a loved one with a disability can be a very rewarding experience, but there is no denying it can also be an incredibly exhausting task. The Wisconsin Elks Association and Easter Seals Wisconsin recognized respite as the number one need of parents and caregivers of individuals with disabilities and have teamed up to provide this unique program. Easter Seals Respite Services gives parents and caregivers time away from the stresses of caring for a loved one (ages 3 and up) with disabilities, allowing them the opportunity to have time to themselves, spend time with their other family members or friends, run errands, and take care of all those other activities that go into having a well-balanced life. Respite Weekend Sessions - Sept to May Aspergers Weekend - Jan. 19-21, 2007 Respite Summer Sessions - June to Aug 2007 Aspergers Weekend - April 20-22, 2007 Spotlight on Siblings - April 13-15, 2007 Aspergers Week - August 12-17, 2007 Siblings - whenever space available If your loved one has mild to severe physical or cognitive disabilities, or has multiple disabilities, and requires more individual attention, our camps may be a good fit for you. The Wisconsin Elks/Easter Seals Respite Camp is a fully accessible facility on 400 beautifully wooded acres located near Wisconsin Dells. Campers are matched one-on-one with a trained counselor in order to provide the best possible care. Medical care is provided by a nurse, who is on site 24 hours a day. Prospective campers and their families are always welcome to visit our Respite Camp. Please call the Respite Director, Val Croissant at 608-254-2502 to make an appointment. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Respite Weekend Sessions -- September to May Keep the fun of Wisconsin Elks/Easter Seals Respite Camp going all year 'round! The need for respite is just as strong during the colder months as it is during the summer, so Respite Camp offers fall, winter and spring weekend sessions starting in early September. In addition, a special four-day session will be offered between Christmas and New Year's Day. Campers will be able to take advantage of camps' fully accessible facilities. From trick-or-treating to sledding, the activities change with the season, so Wisconsin Elks/Easter Seals weekend respite always offers a new adventure! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Aspergers Weekends -- January 19-21, 2007 and April 20-22, 2007 Aspergers Week -- August 12-17, 2007 Easter Seals Wisconsin Camp Wawbeek and Respite Camp have been serving children and adults with disabilities for more the 65 years. We pride ourselves in recognizing the unmet needs for respite and recreation. This is the second year that the Wisconsin Elks/Easter Seals Respite Camp has offered sessions dedicated especially to kids who have Aspergers or high functioning autism. For the first time, a full week planned in August. Campers will be paired two on one with a trained staff member who will encourage appropriate social interactions and active participation in activities. This population is unique in their needs, particularly socially and emotionally and the fun-filled week will included tons of activities that promote positive social interactions and new recreational opportunities. Activities will range from creative arts to sleeping out under the stars, ending each night with stories by the camp fire. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Respite Summer Sessions -- June to August Wisconsin Elks/Easter Seals Respite Camp offers 10 week long sessions June through August. The facility offers five modern cabins with bathrooms, a main lodge, sensory play room, multi-purpose building, activity building and nature nook. Respite campers enjoy a wide range of activities including arts and crafts, campfires, trail rides, singing, swimming, storytelling, nature hikes, sports and campouts, all in the safe supervision of their personal counselor.
