The Wisconsin Lions Camp is gearing up for its 60th year of camping for youth and adults with disabilities this summer. The 12-week summer camping program is provided free of charge, made possible by the financial support of the Lions, Lioness and Leo Clubs of Wisconsin. Individual and corporate donors also assist with financial support. Specialized camping sessions are scheduled for youth and adults who are blind or visually impaired, deaf or hard of hearing. Sessions are also scheduled for youth who socially or educationally function as having an intellectual disability or educational autism or youth with diabetes.
The Lions camp provides summer employment opportunities in positions of cabin counselors, program specialists and nurses. Counselor-in-training programs operate for youth ages 16 & 17.
Owned and operated by the Wisconsin Lions Foundation, the camp, located near Rosholt is also open during the off-season.
The facility is available for rental, with preference given to school groups, organizations serving persons with disabilities and other non-profit groups. Camper applications for various programs or information on summer employment opportunities may be obtained by contacting the camp at 715-677-4969, email at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit wisconsinlionscamp.com.
