Activities

Division Days

Throughout the summer each division has a special day of celebration. They dress up in a certain theme and have special events at each activity. The group also has a pizza party and flies unique flags designed by the campers for the entire camp to see. Some of the themes have included Frozen, Favorite Sports Team and even Halloween in the Summer!

Theme Days

There is never a dull moment at Badger! Throughout the summer we have different special days like Topsy Turvy Day, Field Day, Carnival Day, Badger Olympics, Pirate Day and a Talent Show! On these days we have special activities like inflatables, prizes, games and themed arts & crafts!

Martial Arts

Under the supervision of Hiawatha’s Martial Arts School, campers learn the ancient art of Tae Kwon Do. Made popular by the Ninja Turtles and the Power Rangers, Tae Kwon Do at Badger helps increase discipline, self confidence, self defense and fitness.

Sports

What is camp without summer sports? We have a real baseball diamond, basketball and tennis courts, fields for soccer, kickball and more! We also have three official gaga pits!  Each summer we offer different clinics in a certain sport. All sports are led by instructors who specialize in their sport and adjust the activities for each age group.

Playground

We’ve got tons of playground equipment of all shapes and sizes for all our different age campers! Slides, ropes to climb, four square courts and more!

Drama

Age and gender drive the fun here! While little ones participate in sing-a-long songs and story telling, older kids might put on skits, choreograph a dance or practice improv comedy! It all depends on the group and what their interests are. This is also when groups can work on their talent show act! Our themes in the past have been “Badger Night at the Movies” and “Badger Goes Broadway”.

Music

Led by a music teacher, campers engage with a variety of musical instruments throughout the summer in a room outfitted with a smart board and PA system. For those who already play an instrument it’s a great way to continue with music over the summer. For campers new to music, it’s a fun way to get familiar with instruments and rhythm. Who knows? We might discover the next great ukulele player right here at Badger!

Gaga

Gaga is a fast paced, high energy sport that is similar to dodge ball and is played in an octagonal pit. Gaga is without a doubt a favorite activity amongst all campers.  We are very proud to have three official gaga pits on campus for non-stop fun!

Group Games

In an outdoor, shaded space, campers go wild in the group games area. Our instructors lead campers in soccer, agility drills and even use hula hoops!

Diving

During the summer each group is taught how to dive. Under strict supervision, campers are first taught to dive from the side of the pool, then to our smaller diving board and finally to one of our Olympic diving boards. The instructors give demonstrations every day.

Arts & Crafts

Under our big white tent, we offer many different arts and craft’s projects where our campers can express themselves! We have traditional crafts such as lanyard making, painting, decorating, beading, and our most popular craft, Tie Die along with many more options all under the instruction of our arts & craft instructor.

Dance

Led by a professional dancer and instructor, our dance program has campers boogying all summer long! The theme for dance changes every summer to keep up with times and keep campers engaged. Some themes have been Frozen, Stomp and Zumba! Who knows what will be in store this summer!

Our Happy Campers

My children absolutely love going to Badger. My 12 year old son has attended Badger for 6 years, and my 8 year old daughter has attended for 4 years (I wouldn’t send them anywhere else).
