In light of recommended guidelines to help contain COVID-19 (coronavirus), and after consulting our Camp medical advisor, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS), Easterseals Wisconsin continues to be vigilant about offering opportunities for camp as well as hosting event fundraisers. Please refer to this page often, as we will keep information updated.
Regarding 2021-2022 Camp Sessions (registration begins week of Sept. 13):
Our first priority is always to keep our campers, staff, and families safe. We are excited to be open for weekend and summer sessions! We will be operating at the safest capacity of campers and AmeriCorps/Staff members possible to allow proper distance between beds and seating at mealtimes. As we all know, circumstances can change from week to week, so please be patient as our camp directors manage registration. We will be adjusting our capacity for weekend and summer sessions as Covid Guidelines and Staffing allows.
You will be registered for one weekend and/or one summer session initially, so that we can serve as many families and campers as possible. When the health of our communities and staffing allows, we may register you for a second weekend or summer session. Please be sure your preferences are made clear as you register for camp. Please note, that the camp directors will be registering campers for fall sessions first, then registering for spring sessions beginning in November, finally registering campers for the summer beginning in February. This allows them to stay current on Covid and Staffing trends, and register campers accordingly. We would hate to over-register and not have enough staff, or have to cut back our group size due to Covid. We appreciate your understanding and patience, and look forward to seeing you all at camp!

Supporting Our Mission:
As the country, the state, and our individual communities continue to move forward from the pandemic, your support of our mission is still critical. During 2020, we were forced to cancel major fundraisers and our annual campaign was heavily impacted as well. As we transition back to in-person camp sessions and events, while continuing to provide agency services to the clients we serve, we will need your support and understanding even more. Building back from a year of cancelled camp sessions and postponed events will be tough, but with partners such as you, we know we can do it!
If you are able to give, your donation will help ensure the vital services of Easterseals Wisconsin are still here when this pandemic is completely in the past. Thank you for supporting our mission – even during such uncertain times.
Easterseals Wisconsin Staff: The majority of employees continue to work remotely, and we are encouraging electronic communications in place of face-to-face meetings.
We appreciate your patience and support of these efforts to limit direct contact. Our top priority is the health and well-being of our clients, employees, and volunteers.
We are actively monitoring the local and global health situation and will keep our website updated. We all hope for a speedy end to this crisis. However, we can ease the anxiety in the meantime by remembering that every person and organization is facing unforeseen challenges each day. We are preparing to make necessary changes to do our part to ensure the health and safety of all.
