Badger Camp Receives Donation from West Grant Lions Club
     Wisconsin Badger Camp is pleased to announce it is the recipient of a $1,500 donation from the West Grant Lions Club.   A continuing supporter of Badger Camp, the West Grant Lions Club is a group of dedicated volunteers who serve the community needs of Bagley, Bloomington, Patch Grove, Mount Hope, and Glen Haven, Wisconsin

     Because Badger Camp does not accept any state or federal funding, the West Grant Lions Club is playing an important role in the success of the Campership Program. The generous contribution will go towards the 45 individuals with developmental disabilities from Grant County. The Campership Program plays a vital role in the success of Badger Camp by giving them the opportunity to come to camp and participate in outdoor recreational activities regardless of their financial situation.

      “We truly appreciate the support from the West Grant Lions Club,” Development Director Kayla Leibfried said. “Our Campership Program relies on the generosity of great organizations like the West Grant Lions Club,” Leibfried said.

Badger Camp Receives Grant from the George Family Foundation

     Wisconsin Badger Camp is proud to announce that it is the recipient of a $3,400 grant from the George Family Foundation.  This grant will help support our Crawford County campers through 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. 
      The George Family Foundation is a private foundation established in 1996 in Prairie du Chien, Crawford County, Wisconsin by Roy L. and Geraldine E. George. The mission of the George Family Foundation is to assist those programs and individuals who have a vision and a plan to better the long-term quality of life. The George Family Foundation limits funding to Prairie du Chien, WI and surrounding communities as the founders prefer to benefit the area that has been their home throughout their lives.

    “It’s wonderful to see a foundation supporting its local campers,” Development Director, Kayla Leibfried said. “We greatly appreciate the George Family Foundation’s support of our mission.”
