We are officially wrapping up the first week of the New Year. While many still may be thinking about New Year’s Resolutions, we’re dreaming of summer. Yes, believe it or not, we are already planning the 2016 camping season!
Since 1956, the Wisconsin Lions Camp has been providing kids with special needs from all of the state with the opportunity to spend a week away from home to experience the adventure of a lifetime. These children are able to build essential skills such as self-confidence, interdependence, outdoor recreation and environmental awareness by participating in fun, camp activities. And, the best part? The entire camping experience is free of charge to the families.
Lions Camp provides several weekly summer programs from the second week of June to the last week of August, including:
- Blind and visually impaired
- Deaf and hard of hearing
- Cognitively disabled
- Adult resort programs
Do you know someone who you feel would benefit from a trip to the Wisconsin Lions Camp? Additional program information and applications are available on the Wisconsin Lions Camp website. Remember that the earlier the application is sent, the better your chances into getting registered into your preferred session.
In 2015, donor directed donations to the Lions Pride Endowment Fund were able to provide 142 children the opportunity to enjoy a week at Wisconsin Lions Camp. We cannot wait to see what this year holds. To make your tax-deductible donation, please visit Lions Pride today and click on the Donate Now Button. With your help, we can work to preserve, protect and provide for the Wisconsin Lions Camp and other WLF projects. Lions Pride appreciates your continued support.
