As a Lake Buddy, you will sponsor the cost to send one or more kids to the Lake Explorer Camp.
The Lake Explorer Camp is a partnership program with the Boys & Girls Club of Dane County and Madison Boats that engages kids aged 7-12 in hands-on lake ecology education. Kids identify lake critters under the microscope, learn how to bait a hook and cast a line to fish, and gain valuable paddling and water safety skills under the guidance of skilled outdoors staff and multilingual instructors.
The program currently supports approximately 200 kids per 8-week season. Each child attends a full educational camp day in a small group and a large group field day at the end of the season. Your support as a Lake Buddy helps keep this program running, by funding materials, transportation and staff time for one child.
Interested in sponsoring the Lake Explorer Camp?
With additional sponsorship, the Lake Explorer program could be expanded to create a more in-depth experience for participating kids. Your support could lengthen instruction time or allow for repeat visits during the season. Contact Clean Lakes Alliance at (608) 255-1000 to inquire about sponsorship opportunities.
