Wisconsin Lions Camp is accepting applications for summer camp – Daily Union


The Wisconsin Lions Camp is accepting applications, starting Jan. 30, for its 67th year of camping for youth and adults with disabilities.
One week of camping is provided free of charge to accepted applicants. The camp, owned and operated by the Wisconsin Lions Foundation Inc., in Rosholt, Wisconsin, receives financial support from the Lions Clubs of Wisconsin.
Lions Summer Camp Programs are provided to participants free-of-charge thanks to the generosity of Lions Clubs and other donors from Wisconsin. The Fort Atkinson Lions Club contributes to Lions Camp each year. While the names of the individual campers are not shared, the Club was notified that deaf and hard of hearing individuals in Fort Atkinson attended the camp last year.
Specialized camping sessions are scheduled for youth and adults who are blind, visually impaired, or deaf or hard of hearing. Camping sessions are also scheduled for youth who have diabetes, intellectual disabilities, or educational autism.
The various programs have different application deadlines. A full listing of programs and application deadlines for campers can be found at www.wisconsinlionscamp.com/summer-camp or by calling 715-677-4969.
