Wil-O-Way Recreation is the result of a partnership between Easter Seals Southeast WI and the Milwaukee County Office for Persons with Disabilities. The program provides recreation programs, summer camp activities, and assistance and education.
Beginning in 2016, preference will be given to individuals 21 and younger to attend our respite camps. If space is available, campers who are 22 and older will be enrolled based on a first come, first serve basis. We encourage campers of all ages to apply as quickly as possible.
