What's the Dill?“What’s the Dill?” – Sibshop 2021 Theme

There are all kinds of feelings just like there are all kinds of pickles. Sweet ones. Sour ones. And lots of in-betweens. During this series of Sibshops, we’re going to have fun with PICKLES! Yes, pickles.

Sound crazy? It just might be…and we know it will be fun. Games, conversation, and fun activities designed just for kids ages 6-12 growing up with a sibling with disabilities.

You can come as often as you like. Register once and attend any or all of the following:

Thurs. Jan 14 at 4 PM     What’s in your Pickle Jar?
Thurs. Feb 4 at 4 PM       “Dill” With It (Strategies for and by siblings)
Thurs. Mar 4 at 4 PM      It’s Kind of a Big Dill (Sorting out what you can and can’t control)
Thurs. April 8 at 4 PM    What Kind of a Pickle Am I in Now?

Find a day and time that you can have a quiet spot to join us on your laptop or phone. This is a time set aside for just Sibs.

Building for KidsTHIS SIBSHOP WILL BE RESCHEDULED

In collaboration with the Building for Kids Children’s Museum in downtown Appleton, WisconSibs is offering a unique and safe in-person Sibshop opportunity.

Join us for an Exhibit Exploration Session for the whole household with a pull-out Sibshop for Sibs!

With this very special Exhibit Exploration event, households with a child with disabilities and their siblings will be able to register for 90 minutes of exclusive access to one of four exhibit groupings in the museum, meaning they will be the only ones playing on those exhibits.

Not only that, but the Sibs in each household may attend a fun, socially-distant Sibshop session in the large classroom while parents and child(ren) with disabilities continue their exploration in their Exhibit area.

FREE admission for eligible families (have a child with disabilities and at least one sibling of that child ages 6-12). Register at the Building for Kids.

Two dates in 2021:

February 6, 2021  10:30-Noon
April 17, 2021        10:30-Noon
– Choose your exhibit when you register. Options include:

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. We will have cruising through the week having fun with our 2021 theme “Sibling Cruise”.

Sign up for 3 or more days.
$40 per day* or $175 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.

*Campership grants are awarded, as funds are available, to families needing assistance. For information, check the financial assistance box on the enrollment form found in this brochure.
