Camp for Veterans and their Families: September 19-21, 2014
A free Veterans Family Camp Weekend will be held at Easter Seals Wisconsin Camp Wawbeek in Wisconsin Dells on September 19-21, 2014 for military veterans and their families. Two weekends are held each year, one in the spring and one in the fall. These weekends are meant for families to reconnect with each other and network with other veterans while having a fun and relaxing weekend with many optional planned activities. Activities include: fishing, archery, high-ropes course, arts and crafts, making s’mores, and other “Dells” activities such as a trip to a water park.
The next weekend will be held September 19-21, 2014 with available room for more veterans to join in the fun. Family members may include spouses, children, significant others, parents, grandparents, etc. and are open to all veterans, recently-returned or those whose service was far in the past. Private family lodging, food, all activities and trips are included, in a beautifully-wooded 400 hundred acre setting just outside the city of Wisconsin Dells. As a special service for the May weekend, an attorney specialized in veterans affairs will be available to provide individual consulting services, at no charge, for veterans who request this assistance.
If you, or someone you know, is a veteran who might be interested please contact Easter Seals Wisconsin 608.237.1979 or . Veterans can register for the weekend online. The Veterans Family Camp weekend is offered at no cost to the veterans or their families through generous contributions to Easter Seals Wisconsin.
