*Note: This is first-generation Sibshop training that allows trainees to start Sibshops in their own community or join the troupe of WisconSibs facilitators that will help expand the number of WisconSibs Sibshops offered throughout Wisconsin. Emily Holl, Director of the Sibling Support Project, will be the trainer.
This high energy day-camp for siblings ages 6-12 is held at Plamann Park just north of Appleton. Each day is packed with activities, including swimming, arts and crafts, hikes and hunts, games, carnival and playground fun. PLUS—siblings have the opportunity to share and celebrate the challenges and joys of being a sibling.
All campers start the first day at the Chris Brandt shelter. Older campers expand into their own shelter part of each day.
Sign up for 3 or more days.
$50 per day* or $225 for all 5 days **
SibDays directors are trained WisconSibs Sibshop facilitators. Campers especially enjoy their teen and young adult small group leaders, many of whom also have siblings with special needs. Space is limited to 45 campers.
