Event description

Description

Register your child now to attend our FREE February Sibshop. There is typically a $15 registration fee, but we're making February free to celebrate the new year. This is the perfect opportunity for your child to get an idea of what Sibshops is all about before registering for other Sibshop dates.

At a Sibshop, brothers and sisters will

  • Meet other brothers and sisters of children with special needs
  • Have fun
  • Talk with others who “get it” about the good (and sometimes not so good!) parts of having a sib with special needs
  • Learn more about disabilities and the services that people with disabilities receive
  • Have some more fun!

Who are Sibshops for? Sibshops are for 8 to 12 year-old brothers and sister of children who have special needs.

Who runs Sibshops? Our Sibshops are run by a team of people who have a professional and, in some cases, a personal understanding of the impact a child’s special needs can have on his or her brothers and sisters. Equally important, they all have great kid skills.

When and where are Sibshops held? St. Francis Children’s Center, 6700 N. Port Washington Rd, Milwaukee WI 53217.

Sibshops are held every once every other month. The next Sibshop will be on Saturday, April 14.

Your child is welcome to register and attend any and all Sibshop dates.

What is the cost of a Sibshop? $15 per sibling, which includes lunch. But for February only, we are waiving the fee.

Sounds Great! How do I register? Register easily online here! For more information contact Jennifer Drechsler at St Francis Children’s Center at 414-351-8851 ext. 314 or jdrechsler@sfcckids.org(link sends e-mail). But hurry-space is limited!

Cancellation Policy: A minimum of four participants is required in order to offer the best Sibshop experience. If there is a low number of registrations, the event may be canceled but full refunds will be given.
