Stackner Family Foundation Supports Wisconsin Badger Camp



Wisconsin Badger Camp is the proud recipient of a $4,000 grant from the Stackner Family Foundation. The grant will be used to provide financial assistance for individuals in Waukesha County with developmental disabilities that will attend Wisconsin Badger Camp this summer.
Located 10 miles south of Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin Badger Camp is a private,       non-profit organization that serves individuals with developmental disabilities by providing quality and challenging outdoor recreational experiences. Wisconsin Badger Camp accepts campers regardless of age, severity of a disability, geographical location, or financial situation.  Wisconsin Badger Camp relies on the generosity of organizations like the Stackner Family Foundation, as Badger Camp does not receive any state or federal funding.
            “We appreciate the continuous support of the Stackner Family Foundation in providing financial assistance to our campers in Waukesha County,” Wisconsin Badger Camp Development Director, Kayla Leibfried said. “Stackner Family Foundation is helping us to send 34 individuals with developmental disabilities from Waukesha County regardless of their financial situation,” Leibfried said.  “Because of foundations like this, Badger Camp has not had to turn a camper away based off the severity of their disability or inability to pay the requested camp fee for 50 years,” Leibfried said.
