In addition to the Main Camp programs, Badger Camp offers a Primitive Camp.
Primitive Camp programs offer a variety of choices from horseback riding to a trip to Wisconsin Dells. They are limited to 6-16 campers per session and are guided by 2-5 experienced staff members. Both Primitive Camp and the Travel Program are designed for those looking for a unique and somewhat more challenging experience.
