Programs We Support
This is a List of Programs Supported by the American Legion Post 273
Information on the Various Program May be obtained from the Wisconsin American Legion Website: HERE
Camp American Legion is more than a fishing camp. Camp is a place for Wisconsin Veterans, Military and their families to come together in a safe place. A place where others may have shared life experiences.
American Legion Baseball is always growing, and participation is easy! In Wisconsin, over 200 teams compete each year, so there's ample opportunity for new players to join, and for coaches who want to start a team.
Young athletes ages 13-18 years old are eligible to play. American Legion Post sponsorship is encouraged but not a requirement to play Legion ball.
Americanism and Government Scholarship Program
It is a week-long journey through a great many things that make us who we are; leaders, friends, students, athletes, and most of all citizens of our respective cities, towns, and our great state. The journey can be described as the most challenging and most rewarding (and fun) experience by those who have already participated in the program.
The American Legion is the largest collective blood-donor to the Red Cross. The most important part about donating blood is to remember that it saves lives. Waiting for an emergency to donate will not get the blood to the receiver in time.
Boy Scouts learn some of life's more serious lessons while having fun. Boys learn about important values, such as helping yourself by helping others, and honoring the basic rights of others. Boy Scouting's active learning experience include hiking, camping, and other outdoor expeditions; competitive individual and team sports activities; and community or religious service projects. Many Boy Scouts first practice basic leadership, self-government, and citizenship skills during regular troop campouts and meetings.
Our Girl Scout Leadership Experience is a one-of-a-kind leadership development program for girls, with proven results. It is based on time-tested methods and research-backed programming that help girls take the lead—in their own lives and in the world.
It has been recognized that there is little emphasis and very little material available on county government in our schools. There is also a general reluctance to accept any responsibility for the workings and outcome of our government. When Americans turn 18, they are granted the right to vote, however, very few uphold this honor. Some say it’s because they weren't’ ever educated enough, some don'’t feel they'’re qualified enough, and some just don’t care enough about the inner-workings of our political system.
Participants in the American Legion Oratorical Contest develop leadership qualities, the ability to think and speak clearly and intelligently, and are better prepared for the acceptance of the duties and responsibilities, for the rights and privileges of American citizenship.
Schneider-Emanuel American Legion Scholarship
Junior Shooting Sports is a three-part program that combines the Basic Marksmanship Course,
The Sons of The American Legion was created in 1932 as an organization within The American Legion. The S.A.L. is made up of boys and men of all ages whose parents or grandparents served in the United States military and became eligible for membership in The American Legion. Together, members of The American Legion, The American Legion Auxiliary and the Sons of The American Legion make up what is known as The Legion Family. All three organizations place high importance on preserving our American traditions and values, improving the quality of life for our nation's children, caring for veterans and their families, and perhaps most importantly, teaching the fundamentals of good citizenship.
Inspiring the Next Generation of First Responders

Why is our Wisconsin American Legion Enforcement Career Academy (WALLECA) so important? Agencies across the state and even around the country are constantly in need of quality applicants entering the law enforcement field.
That's why Legion Wisconsin launched WALLECA, designed to provide first-hand experiences and insight into the operation of law enforcement agencies. The program is exclusively for current Juniors an
WALLECA is funded by our sponsors and supporters across Wisconsin who understand the importance of developing our next generation of first responders. Please join us and donate today!
Honor Flight Network is a non-profit organization created solely to honor America’s veterans for all their sacrifices. We transport our heroes to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at their memorials. Top priority is given to the senior veterans – World War II survivors, along with those other veterans who may be terminally ill.
