Wisconsin Badger Camp is the proud recipient of a $2,000 grant from the William & Cynthia Berg Family Fund of the La Crosse Community Foundation. This grant will be used to help improve the outdoor recreational experiences for adults and children with developmental disabilities from the La Crosse County that attend Wisconsin Badger Camp.
By providing outdoor recreational experiences such as fishing, hiking, camping, horseback riding, canoeing, and arts & crafts, Wisconsin Badger Camp brings the tradition of outdoor recreational experiences to people of any ability or age regardless of one’s financial situation.
“We appreciate the commitment the William & Cynthia Berg Family Fund of the La Crosse Community Foundation made to support youth and adults with developmental disabilities,” Wisconsin Badger Camp Development Director, Kayla Leibfried said. “We truly appreciate these donations and the commitment it took to make it possible,” 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. Camp starts June 12th and runs through August 19th.
