Minnesota Farmers Union Summer Leadership Camp
All MN Farmers Unions summer camps have been cancelled for 2020
Leadership Camp is affordable and open to everyone, regardless of your current or past farming background. It’s all about helping young people become good citizens by planting the seeds of responsibility, leadership, and cooperation in an environment where those qualities can grow and flourish.
Campers have opportunities to develop these qualities through some of the simple, day-to-day tasks at camp. These activities provide a common foundation for all campers to share the responsibility of making camp a fun, safe place to be and are the foundation of developing cooperation skills that can last a lifetime.
