Easterseals Camps

VNA / Easterseals Nebraska is an alliance dedicated to enhancing the health and lives of those we serve. Easterseals Nebraska provides exceptional services to help ensure all people with disabilities have an equal opportunity to live, learn, work and play.

Easterseals Nebraska Camp, Respite & Recreation program provides weeklong summer camps, weekend respite camps and day events that offer the same excitement and challenges of a standard camp, in a fully accessible setting. Our Camp, Respite and Recreation programming is designed to serve individuals of all abilities across a life span. Our services are tailored to the needs of the individual! Campers gain independence and social interaction skills while participating in a variety of fun, adapted activities.

To ensure camp remains accessible, camp enrollment fees are $1,100, which does not cover the actual cost of $1,400 per camper. Camp enrollment fees fund the expenses necessary to providing ESN Camp, to include personnel, supplies, equipment, facility rental and lodging, meals, and transportation costs. Each year, almost 85% of campers depend on financial assistance to attend camp.  The gap between actual costs and what is billed to families, as well as the ability to offer partial to full camp scholarships, is covered by donors like you. Help us continue to give campers the opportunity to believe anything is possible.

Summer registration is now open; sessions are filling up fast, register now!  To register, go to easterseals.com/ne/our-programs/camping-recreation.
