Badger Camp Receives Generous Donation from Alliant Energy Foundation
Wisconsin Badger Camp is the proud recipient of a $1,500 grant from the Alliant Energy Foundation. The Alliant Energy Foundation has been a supporter of Badger Camp for many years. This grant will be put towards a campership program, making it possible for individuals with developmental disabilities from Dane County attend Wisconsin Badger Camp.
By providing outdoor recreational experiences 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 Alliant Energy Foundation for helping us provide adults and children with developmental disabilities with outdoor recreational services,” Wisconsin Badger Camp Development Director, Kayla Leibfried said. “It costs over $900 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 Alliant Energy Foundation, individuals can come to camp regardless of what their financial situation is.”
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.
