Badger Camp Receives Grant from the Monsignor Thomas F Campion Special Projects Fund


Wisconsin Badger Camp is pleased to announce that it is the recipient of a $1,000 grant from the Monsignor Thomas F Campion Special Projects Fund.  This grant will be put towards our Campership Program.  Wisconsin Badger Camp’s Campership Program is an ongoing initiative that was established to help provide financial assistance to campers who wish to attend.  This means that our 19 Green County campers will receive the needed financial assistance to attend Badger Camp.   
The Monsignor Thomas F Campion Special Projects Fund was established in 2011 to provide lasting support for charitable, cultural, educational and recreational programs or projects in southern Wisconsin and/or northern Illinois.
“It’s great to see a foundation in Green County supporting campers from within their county through our Campership Program,” Development Director, Kayla Leibfried said. “We greatly appreciate the Monsignor Thomas F Campion Special Projects Fund ongoing support of our mission.”

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.  If you or someone else you know would like more information on how to make a donation or for tour information please call Wisconsin Badger Camp at (608) 348-9689 or visit our website at: www.badgercamp.org.

Badger Camp 1966 Event
     On Saturday, December 12th we will hold our first ever Badger Camp 1966 Event. The Badger Camp 1966 Event will replace our Annual Christmas Telethon so that we may still be able to raise funds to financially support individuals with developmental disabilities who wish to attend Badger Camp.

    The Badger Camp 1966 Event will include a dinner, guest appearances from retired Green Bay Packers players Jerry Kramer and Gilbert Brown, silent and live auction, live music, door prizes and more.   “Our organization is very excited to finally be able to announce our new event,” Development Director, Kayla Leibfried said. “The Badger Camp 1966 Event will be a way to still raise money to financially support our campers, keep our supports engaged and celebrate serving individuals with developmental disabilities since 1966.”


   Wisconsin Badger Camp looks forward to hosting this new event and to keep growing our relationship with the community. The Badger Camp 1966 Event will be held on December 12th at 5:00 p.m. at the Holiday Gardens Event Center in Potosi, Wisconsin. Tickets go on sale August 17th and are available at Badger Camp’s office or by calling 608-348-9689.
