Jack Deloss Charitable Trust Supports Wisconsin Badger Camp
The Jack DeLoss Charitable Trust has been a supporter of Wisconsin Badger Camp for 13 years. This year we are proud to announce that they have selected Badger Camp as a recipient for a $9,000 grant. This grant will financially support individuals with developmental disabilities from Dane County through our campership program who attend Wisconsin Badger Camp.
This grant will help provide over 200 individuals from Dane County experience outdoor recreational activities such as fishing, hiking, camping, horseback riding, canoeing, and arts & crafts. Wisconsin Badger Camp brings a tradition of outdoor recreational experiences to people of any ability or age regardless of one’s financial situation.
“We are very appreciative of the Jack DeLoss Charitable Trust for all of the years of support and helping individuals with developmental disabilities attend camp,” Wisconsin Badger Camp Development Director, Kayla Smith said. “It costs over $800 to host a camper for one week at camp, but we realize many of the individuals we serve are on limited or restricted incomes. With the support of the Jack Deloss Charitable Trust individuals can come to camp regardless of what their financial situation is,” Smith said.
Wisconsin Badger Camp is an independent nonprofit organization located approximately 10 miles south of Prairie du Chien and serves approximately 900 individuals with developmental disabilities each summer. Badger Camp relies on the community’s time, talent, and financial assistance to provide for its campers.
