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 2020-2021 Camp Sessions:
Our first priority is always to keep our campers, staff, and families safe. Please be aware that to do this, we will be holding smaller weekend sessions which will impact the number of sessions you are allowed to attend. Our directors and medical staff will do their best to allow as many opportunities as safely possible, but it will not be the same as past years.

Supporting Our Mission:
Your support of our mission during this time is critical. During 2020, we have been forced to cancel major fundraisers and our annual campaign which kicked off in March was heavily impacted as well. Our summer camp sessions were cancelled this year, an enormous strain on the agency as well as the clients we serve. So without these sources of revenue we depend even more so on direct donations. If you are able to give, your donation will help ensure that these vital services are still here when this pandemic is over. 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.
