Minnesota Farmers Union kicks off 2016 camp season

Minnesota Farmers Union (MFU) is delighted to kick off another fun-filled camp season for 2016. As parents begin to prepare their children’s schedules, MFU offers affordable and educational camps throughout Minnesota as an option. MFU professional camp counselors will be traveling around the state teaching campers about cooperative organizations, and collaboration, while most importantly having fun! Each camp is unique, with a different combination of crafts, games, lessons, songs, and skits all in the great outdoors. These activities are designed to enhance each camper’s leadership skills—the building blocks of strong rural communities—in an entertaining and engaging setting outside of the classroom.

"Minnesota Farmers Union camps are a great opportunity for kids to get their hands dirty, learn about farms and rural communities and have some fun this summer,” said Doug Peterson, Minnesota Farmers Union President.  “The kids will be enjoying themselves, and the parents will be able to surprise them with an educational option this summer.”
