Easter Seals Wisconsin has a variety of ways that you can volunteer and donate your time to give to children and adults with disabilities. For more information on any of these opportunities, please contact our AmeriCorps Volunteer Coordinator, Rachell Howell, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 608-254-2502.
Volunteer at Camp
Volunteering at Easter Seals Wisconsin Camps is a spectacular way to show you care about helping persons with disabilities achieve success and have fun. Activities like riding bikes, taking nature walks, completing art projects, playing favorite sports and games, dancing, sledding, swimming, camping under the stars, singing, or almost anything else you or your camper can imagine give the campers a real sense of accomplishment. While volunteering, you also get the opportunity to connect personally with the campers, learning everything from their interests and hobbies, to the best way to help them get into bed at night.
We are always looking for people to volunteer for our weekend programs at both Camp Wawbeek and Respite Camp in Wisconsin Dells. We provide on-site room and board, as well as a brief training period. Volunteers are needed by Friday at 3:00 pm for training; the camp session lasts until Sunday at 4:00 pm. We do ask you to fill out an application and submit a reference form. After we receive these items, we will do a background check and interview you. You must be at least age 18 to provide direct camper care. Please contact our AmeriCorps Volunteer Coordinator at 608-254-2502 or by e-mail.

Events throughout the Year
Easter Seals Wisconsin hosts many events throughout the year to raise money to support our programs and services. From camp clean-ups to fundraisers, volunteers play a critical role in the success of each event.
