Thank You to 2013 Spring Spruce-Up Volunteers
Wisconsin Badger Camp’s annual Spring Spruce-Up, held on April 20, proved to be a success. Forty-five volunteers of all abilities came out to help Badger Camp get ready for the 2013 summer season. Tasks included working on building and grounds maintenance, lawn and garden work, painting, cleaning lodges and construction projects throughout Badger Camp’s 680 acres.
Wisconsin Badger Camp is located approximately 10 miles south of Prairie du Chien and welcomes approximately 900 individuals with developmental disabilities each year. Since 1966, Badger Camp has relied on the help of volunteers to make its campers’ experience enjoyable, educational, and fun. “Spring Spruce-Up” is the first opportunity of the year to volunteer at Wisconsin Badger Camp.
Kayla Smith, Development/Communication Director at Wisconsin Badger Camp, said, “It was wonderful to see so many familiar faces come out to support Badger Camp. It really means a lot to Badger Camp that so many people were willing to give up their time to help camp. Thank you to all who came out and helped prepare camp for an exciting summer!”
