Knights of Columbus Council #4416 Volunteer at Camp!



 

Knights of Columbus Council #4416 Volunteer at Badger Camp

           
            Bloomington, Glen Haven and Casseville Knights of Columbus Council #4416 took the time to come to Wisconsin Badger Camp to cut fire wood for the 2014 camping season. It was beautiful but chilly day; however that didn’t stop the volunteers from working hard. Each year the Knights of Columbus Council #4416 come to camp to help cut fire wood for the summer.

            “This is one great way that people and organizations can help camp without having to donate money.” Wisconsin Badger Camp, Camp Director Melissa David said. “It is truly amazing to see people taking their weekends to volunteer for camp.” David said. The fire wood is used on a daily basis at camp from making meals to helping keep campers warm at night.

“We are truly grateful for the continuous support of the Knights of Columbus council #4416. They help in any way possible make the camping experience a memorable time for each camper.” Wisconsin Badger Camp Executive Director, Brent Bowers said. “Campers will be able to participate in many fun activities that are not normally available to them, at the same time making memories that last a lifetime,” Bowers said.

Located 10 miles south of Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin Badger Camp is a private, non-profit organization that serves individuals with developmental disabilities by providing quality outdoor recreational experiences. Wisconsin Badger Camp accepts campers regardless of age, severity of a disability, or financial situation.  Wisconsin Badger Camp relies on the generosity of organizations and businesses like the Knights of Columbus Council #4416 as Badger Camp does not receive any state or federal funding.
