2019 Summer Camps

Ag in the Classroom Summer Teacher tours

Please consider attending yourself and share this information with the K-12 educators in your school district.  The goal of the MAITC Summer Teacher Tours is to provide first-hand experience with agriculture and access to FREE ag-themed, standards-based resources.  We would love to have you, and a few of your non-ag-teaching educator friends, join us for one or more tours this summer! Additional details and registration information can be found at Ag in the classroom summer tours.

Minnesota Farmers Union Summer Leadership Camp

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.
