$1,650 Grant to Wisconsin Badger Camp from Oshkosh Area Community Foundation

Wisconsin Badger Camp is the proud recipient of a $1,650 grant from the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation.  This grant will help support our youth campers from Winnebago County through our Campership Program.  The Campership Program allows campers that cannot afford the requested camp fee to still experiences all that camp has to offer.  

Since 1928, the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation has helped donors turn their charitable investments into projects that add energy and vitality to our community. Wisconsin Badger Camp does not receive state or federal funding so this grant from the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation is important in allowing Winnebago County campers to attend regardless of their financial situation. 
“The Oshkosh Area Community Foundation is a continued supporter of our Winnebago County youth campers,” Development Director, Kayla Leibfried said. “Our organization and our campers greatly appreciate their generosity.”

  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.
