Easter Seals Wisconsin supports individuals with disabilities through a variety of recreational activities and services to help both youth and adults achieve independence in everyday living. The Easter Seals Wisconsin transitions-camp program provides young adults with disabilities an opportunity to practice caring for themselves independently before transitioning into moving away to college or living on their own for the first time.
The transitions-camp program runs for two weekends in February and May, and hosts activities that teach life skills such as money management, grocery shopping, and cooking healthful meals. The camp prepares young adults who will be living without their parents’ care and attendance for the first time, and participants can learn at their own pace in a relaxed camp environment away from the challenges and stresses of home and school. Campers can also learn to network with potential employers or educational programs, and work on their individual goals to achieve greater independence, such as learning to brush their own teeth or count money. Easter Seals Wisconsin is in need of additional funding to sponsor a scholarship for the transitions camp, which covers the costs of meals, lodging, staff support and care, and supplies.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help young people with disabilities learn life skills to help them achieve independence. If G-Team members raise $400, then Easter Seals Wisconsin can sponsor one young adult in its weekend-long transitions-camp program. Each additional $400 raised will sponsor another young adult to attend the camp.
