Youth Camp 
7-10 July 2022
Camp Lakotah, WI

Due to the overwhelming success of Youth Camp 2021, We decided to expand Youth Camp into a 4 day event. 

Youth Camp is filling up quickly. If you have not registered your children and are planning to, please register before all open slots are filled!

Who Can Attend?

Dependent  children of currently serving service members.

What is the cost?

The cost for Youth Camp this year is $115.00 per child. 

Why is the cost higher than last year?

Adding  an additional day, combined with the additional meals and materials have driven the cost up.

Children of currently serving Service Members receive a reduction in costs for attending Youth Camp thanks to a generous donation from the USO of Wisconsin.

How long is youth camp?

This year Badger  Youth Camp will be Thursday – Sunday; July 7-10 2022.

Can i volunteer?

Because we are using a civilian facility our need for volunteers is very limited.

How do we pay for camp?

We will use EventBrite for registration and PayPal as the payment system.

Frequently asked questions

Camp Lakotah provides ACA trained counselors to support Badger Youth Camp. Utilizing their staff provides a safe, well-rounded program for all campers.

There may be a need for a few volunteers to provide support. We will establish a sign-up site and publish it on this page. Volunteers will be assigned based on their experience and the needs for camp this year.

The cost for using a civilian facility is subsidized by the USO and other outside agencies. The subsidy is targeted toward currently-serving service members. We need to respect the intent of their support and ensure that the dependents of currently-serving service members are receiving the support.

Camp Lakotah is facing the same financial issues other businesses are facing due to the lingering effects of Covid-19 on the economy. A shortage of supplies and escalating costs has forced the staff at Camp Lakotah to pass along some of those charges to us. 

Camp Lakotah is graciously cutting the cost that is normally charged for a camp like ours to provide some financial relief to military families,

You can contact the Youth Camp Director if you have any additional questions or concerns.
