Since 1926, Easterseals Wisconsin has been creating life-changing solutions for individuals with disabilities and their families. Our mission is to increase independence, maximize opportunities, minimize barriers, and enhance the quality of life for people with disabilities.
Easterseals Wisconsin operates two camp programs that serve campers and families from every region of Wisconsin. Both of our camps serve campers who may have physical disabilities, as well as cognitive delays and autism spectrum disorders. Camp Wawbeek serves campers who can function in a small group of peers, while Respite Camp serves campers who may require more individualized attention and care. Both camps offer respite for families and provide campers with fully accessible outdoor opportunities in an inclusive environment.
