MFU announces day camps
St. Paul (June 4, 2012) - Minnesota Farmers Union (MFU) offers several day camps throughout the summer. At the day camps children participate in classic children’s games that teach them about cooperation, an important building block for strong rural communities. Cooperative educational games show children the importance of working together in teams to reach goals. Children also get involved in several fun activities such as crafts, fun songs, skits, and leadership lessons, all in a positive environment.
"The Minnesota Farmers Union day camps are a great opportunity for kids to learn more about farms and where their food comes from,” said Doug Peterson, Minnesota Farmers Union President.
This summer, MFU will hold nine day camps throughout the state, and they are:
Saturday, June 9 1 – 4 p.m. Lake Crystal Area Rec. Center
