IT TAKES TEAMWORK -- The Bishop O'Connor Catholic Pastoral Center in Madison is the site of the University of Wisconsin-Madison Badgers football training camp in July and August. Here, Badgers practice on the O'Connor Center fields. In addition to using the fields, the Badgers use much of the facility, including the guest rooms, gym, dining room, and meeting rooms. It takes teamwork between the Badgers' staff and the O'Connor Center staff to ensure that the camp runs smoothly. The Badgers are one of the many groups who use the facility during the year.
