SPECIAL TOUCH GET AWAY
WIS / N. MICH • JUNE 26-30
Spencer Lake Christian Center, Waupaca, WI
Coord: Rev. Charlie & Debbie Chivers
What is a Get Away?
It’s five days, in residence, camp-style retreat for people with intellectual or physical disabilities to find fellowship with others in a Christian atmosphere.
What are the facilities like?
While the facilities at each Get Away vary, special care has been given to select facilities that will best fit the special needs of our guests. Each Get Away has various activities such as: swimming, fishing, crafts, boat rides, sports, games, hayrides, bonfires, petting zoos, and local interests.
What are some of the features of a Get Away?
What you can expect at each Get Away is functionally appropriate programming for people with physical or intellectual disabilities, professional medical staff, and compassionate volunteer caregivers provided for ages 10 and up – families are welcome (Inquire about family discounts).
What is the staff like?
Each of our Get Aways has trained caregivers, a full-time nursing staff, with a low guest to staff ratio.
What is the cost for all this?
The guests’ tuition for each Get Away vary based upon the cost of renting each facility and state requirements. Our fees are much lower than the national average for similar programs. We work very hard to make sure that each guest pays the lowest price possible. We have early registration and family discounts.
On Sunday we hope to share with you some testimonies from Kids’ Camp. We had five campers this past week who enjoyed the fellowship, worship and great outdoors at Spencer Lake Christian Center in Waupaca.
