Badger Dairy Camp is an annual camp held in June and is open to youth between the ages of 12 and 18. This camp, held on the beautiful University of Wisconsin Madison campus, provides an excellent opportunity for youth to get hands-on experience learning how to fit and show animals. Youth also learn about the purebred cattle industry and attend workshops including “Roaming Through the Rumen”. Instructors for the camp include dairy industry leaders, graduate students, and UW professors.
Each year the camp is open to one hundred youth. This three-day event is open to all dairy youth between the ages 12 and 18. Although the majority of our campers come from Wisconsin, we welcome out of state campers and in the past have had camper come from as far as Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, Florida, Colorado, and Washington state!
The 2018 Badger Dairy Camp will be held June 7-9.
Enrollment for the 2018 Badger Dairy Camp end on April 27, 2018 or when 100 applications have been received.
