Our participants are adults with mild to moderate developmental disabilities. They must be able to care for their own basic daily living needs, including: feeding and toileting themselves, communicating with others, and if need be, drawing and administering injections. Those that don’t meet the self-care criteria may bring a trained attendant. Attendants/companions are charged half the camp rate. Many of our campers participate in school, workshops, sheltered or community employment. Individuals with a degree of severe to profound disabilities are not eligible due to the limitations of the volunteer staff.
Personal information concerning campers on registration forms and health forms is used exclusively for the purpose of assuring the participant’s week is a safe and fun-filled experience. All information received is confidential.
First-year campers and campers who have not participated in a Wisconsin United Methodist Camp in the last three years MUST provide three (3) letters of reference.
Reference letters should address:
• the camper’s ability to care for his/her own needs.
• the camper’s ability to participate in camp activities.
• the camper’s social abilities.
References may be provided by teachers, supervisors from places of employment or sheltered workshops, doctors, therapists, or psychologists. Please be sure that the name, title, address, and telephone number for each reference is included.
Our facilities are smoke free environments.
Rules for acceptance and participation are the same for everyone without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, sex, or age.
We reserve the right to evaluate the camper after arrival at camp and send the camper home if he/she is not able to care for his/her own basic daily living needs.
