Badger Camp Receives Grant from the Capital Times Kids Fund, Inc.

     Wisconsin Badger Camp is pleased to announce it is the recipient of a $4,000 grant from The Capital Times Kids Fund, Inc. This grant will financially support 22 youth with developmental disabilities from Dane County who attend Wisconsin Badger Camp. 

     The Capital Times Kids Fund carefully evaluates grant requests from non-profit organizations, distributing those gifts to serve the needs of kids and their families in Dane County. This summer, there will be 223 total campers from Dane County, including the 22 youth. 

     The Kids Fund’s generous contribution towards the 22 youth with developmental disabilities from Dane County plays a vital role in the success of Badger Camp by giving these children the opportunity to come to camp and participate in outdoor recreational activities regardless of their financial situation. 

      “We greatly appreciate the continued support from The Capital Times Kids Fund,” Development Director, Kayla Leibfried said. “We would not be able to continue our Campership Program and financial assistance to our campers without the help of foundations like The Capital Times Kids Fund,” Leibfried said. 

     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.
