Situated on 440 well-groomed acres with a 45-acre private lake, the Wisconsin Lions Camp encourages learning through outdoor recreational and educational activities. During our summer camp sessions we serve youth with mild cognitive disabilities and diabetes, as well as youth and adults who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing or Blind and Visually Impaired. There is no cost for attending any of the Summer Camp programs for qualified Wisconsin residents. The Wisconsin Lions Camp also provides Retreat and Conference Center programs from September through May.
