Our traditional summer camp program begins in mid-June and ends in mid-August. Each five-day session runs from Monday through Friday and is divided into specific age groups. Our camper to staff ratio is typically 3:1. Our summer camp participants enjoy a variety of traditional camp activities such as swimming, arts & crafts, and campfires. They also enjoy a variety of community activities such as bowling at the Elk’s Club, Tuesday movies at the cinema, concerts in the park, and picnics at the beach. A major field trip is planned for each session and include destinations such as the Milwaukee or Green Bay Zoo, Discovery Zone, the Milwaukee Museum/IMAX Theater, the Packer Hall of Fame, and the EAA in Oshkosh.
Our day services program is in operation Monday through Friday, from 8AM until 3PM throughout the year. We currently serve 15 clients, with a 3:1 camper to staff ratio. Our day service program is designed to meet the individual needs of each of our clients.
Each week we plan our lunch menu (lunch is provided at no additional charge each day) and take a group grocery shopping. During the winter months we visit the Mead Public Library to pick out a movie for movie day and a book to share during reading time. Other winter activities may include arts & crafts, playing games, baking, bowling, and a big field trip planned for each month.
During the summer we have easy access to one of Sheboygans beautiful Evergreen Park as well as Maywood Environmental Park for walks and picnics. We also enjoy Tuesday movies at the Cinema, swimming in our on-site swimming pool, and many other outdoor activities that the summer weather permits.
A communication log is sent home each day between us and caregivers to keep everyone informed on the clients day/night events and other important information.
Weekend respite begins in late August and runs through early May. We currently offer three weekends each month for our campers who have attended our summer program in the past. Weekends are low-key, stay at camp opportunities for campers to hang out with friends, do arts & crafts, watch movies, listen to music, dance, play games, and just enjoy some time away from home. It is also a great opportunity for parents and care providers to take a little break from their daily routine.
