Welcome to the Wisconsin Lions Camp
Join us for a week away from home to experience the adventure of the lifetime!
Come swim and boat on Lions Lake, explore in our environmental education program, hit a target in archery, climb to new heights on our climbing tower, high ropes and zip line, create lasting art and performance projects, enjoy a campfire and wallow in our mud pit. Meet other youth and adults from Wisconsin and build lasting friendships in a safe environment.
This quality camping experience is provided free-of-charge to eligible youth and adults with disabilities from Wisconsin. We serve youth and adults who are blind or visually impaired, Deaf or Hard of Hearing, youth who function socially or educationally as having a mild cognitive disability and youth with diabetes. A chance remark, “Blind kids can’t go to outdoor camps and stuff like that…” started it all in 1955 and in 1956, the Lions Clubs of the State of Wisconsin founded the Wisconsin Lions Camp and the Wisconsin Lions Foundation, Inc. to administer the Camp program. From that humble beginning with 26 campers, we are proud to serve over 1,300 campers a summer.
