THE WABIKON FOUNDATION
Founded in 1996
The Wabikon Foundation was created by Marcello and Margaret Bernardo, to address an increasing awareness of unexpected economic changes that were affecting Wabikon campers and families. The Foundation's primary focus is to assist campers whose families, for reasons beyond their control, are not (or are no longer) able to afford full payment of camp fees.
Recipients of Wabikon Foundation awards will be selected from written submissions presented prior to May 1st of each camp year. All submissions should be sent in writing to the attention of
The Wabikon Foundation. If you would like more information on what to include in a submission, please contact us by phone. The mailing address and phone number are listed below.
While the beneficiaries of Wabikon Foundation awards will primarily be offered opportunity to attend Camp Wabikon, the administration of the Foundation is entirely separated from the administration of the Camp. The Wabikon Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors, who are also committed members
of the Wabikon Advisory Council.
Both are volunteer groups.
THE WABIKON FAMILY
The Wabikon Foundation has been encouraged by the continued generosity of Wabikon’s large and caring family. Parents, Guardians, campers, CITs and Staff, both past and present, each year find ways to donate funds such as “tuck refunds” to help with the work of the foundation.
Since 1996 The Wabikon Foundation has been able to assist over 150 recipients who, without these generous donations, would not have benefited from the camp experience.
is wonderful, and is vital to the success of The Wabikon Foundation’s wish
to support young campers and leaders.
