Pack your bags, grab the sunscreen and let’s get ready to camp! We are officially less than ten days away from the start of the 2018 camping season at Wisconsin Lions Camp, and we couldn’t be more excited. For the past 60+ years, nearly 1300 campers with vision, hearing, mild cognitive disabilities and Type 1 and 2 diabetes travel to Rosholt for the adventure of a lifetime.
Below you will find the 2018 schedule:
June 10-15 Adults who are Blind or Visually Impaired
June 17-22 Children with Type I & II Diabetes
June 24-29 Children with Type I & II Diabetes
July 1-6 Children with Intellectual Disabilities or Educational Autism
July 8-13 Children with Intellectual Disabilities or Educational Autism
July 15-20 Staff Transition Week
July 22-27 Children who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing
July 29-August 3 Children who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing

August 12-17 Adults 18-25 with Intellectual Disabilities or Educational Autism (by invitation only)
August 20-24 Adults who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing (July 20)
During their week away, campers have the chance to create a comprehensive program built around their interests. Overnight camping, canoeing, hiking, swimming, sailing, kayaking, paddle boarding, archery and crafts make up the daily activities that take place at camp.
The goals of camp are to assist each child in the areas of self-confidence, interdependence, environmental awareness, but above all, to have a fun, safe experience combined with camaraderie and friendship.
What do our campers and Lions Pride have in common? We both look forward to the camping season all year long. Did you know that when the Wisconsin Lions Camp was first opened, it was funded primarily by Lions Club donations? In the last decade or so, however, expenses for camp and all other WLF statewide projects have increased drastically.
Many might be surprised to learn that combatting rising costs was the primary reason for the birth of our organization. Read the whole story here. Today, the Wisconsin Lions Camp is one of the statewide WLF projects that receive financial support from the Lions Pride Endowment Fund. We’re proud to work alongside both donors to help create lifetime camp experiences for both now and future generations. We sincerely appreciate your support as we continue on to preserve, protect and provide.
