Jack DeLoss Taylor Charitable Trust Continues to Support Badger Camp

The Jack DeLoss Taylor Charitable Trust has been a supporter of Wisconsin Badger Camp for 16 years. This year, we are proud to announce that they have selected Badger Camp as a recipient for a $10,000 grant. This grant will financially support individuals with developmental disabilities from Dane County through our Campership Program who attend Wisconsin Badger Camp.

This grant will help provide 223 individuals from Dane County experience outdoor recreational activities 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 financial situation.

 “We greatly appreciate the Jack DeLoss Taylor Charitable Foundation for their continued support over the years,” Wisconsin Badger Camp Development Director, Kayla Leibfried said. “It costs over $1,000 to host a camper for one week at camp, but we realize many of the individuals we serve are on limited or fixed income. Thanks to the support from the Jack DeLoss Taylor Charitable Trust individuals can come to camp regardless of their financial situation,” 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.
