Camping & Recreation

Recreation Programs

Adult Recreation is offered over the Spring, Summer, and Fall seasons. Programming is available to individuals with disabilities ages 16 and up through the Wil-O-Way Recreation Center. Recreation gives participants the opportunity to socialize with their peers and have fun while learning new skills. Activities are planned for weekdays and weekends, afternoons and evenings, and include exciting offerings such as bowling, ceramics, cooking classes, community outings and Friday night dances!  Every session brings a plethora of new opportunities being offered in six different locations throughout Milwaukee County for you to pick and choose from.

Summer Respite Camps

Children and adults with mobility limitations and intellectual or learning disabilities are at greatest risk for obesity.  1 in 5 children with special needs, ages 10-17 years old, are obese. Annual health care costs of obesity that are related to disability are estimated at approximately $44 billion and impair an individual’s opportunities for greater independence.

Easter Seals Recreation and Camp programs lower children and adolescents risk for health problems, such as obesity and heart disease, by engaging in physical activities that are adapted to meet their individual needs. 

Easter Seals Southeast Wisconsin provides summer respite camp programs for children, teens and adults with or without disabilities. Our Wil-O-Way locations offer six weeks of summer fun for children and adults ages 7 and up, while our inclusive Holler Park and SPARC camps offer nine weeks of excitement for children ages 7-21.

Spina Bifida Wisconsin 

Spina Bifida Wisconsin offers a Campership Fund. The Campership Fund is available for anyone with Spina Bifida, ages 8 and over, wishing to attend summer camps. Each individual may receive one campership per calendar year to attend camp. The purpose of this fund is to promote independence and socialization. SBWIS will pay up to $700 for registration fees to any camp in the United States. Expenses other than registration will be covered at the discretion of SBWIS. Funds are dispersed directly to the camp after the family provides proof of registration or can be reimbursed to the family if they have proof they have already paid the camp registration fee.
