Get ready for an unforgettable summer filled with adventure, friendship and endless memories! The Wisconsin Lions Camp, our free summer camp for children and adults with disabilities, is gearing up for another exciting season. We can’t wait to welcome campers and staff to Camp.

The excitement is already building, with over 1,000 campers signed up for the 2024 season — a four-year high since the COVID-19 pandemic. This is a testament to the incredible community we’ve built and the life-changing experiences Wisconsin Lions Camp provides.


Exciting New Camp Features

This year, we’ve added some fantastic new features to make the Camp experience even more enjoyable. Campers can enjoy shooting hoops or swinging racquets on our brand-new basketball, tennis and pickleball courts, take a break in the new shade structures while on the challenge course, boating and swimming areas, and explore the waters of Lions Lake with our freshly organized kayak equipment. Our campers are also able to enjoy a campfire at the pavilion in the boating area and new seating in swimming. Thanks to the donors of our Giving Tuesday campaign last fall, we were also able to purchase several new Wig Wag boats, a fun watercraft propelled by shifting your weight from side to side.

Thank you to our maintenance crew, Facility Director Pete, and all our donors who made these updates possible. We look forward to putting these new additions to use this summer!
