In addition to a variety of educational conferences and events for farmers and consumers, Wisconsin Farmers Union coordinates a summer camp program at WFU Kamp Kenwood. The camps offer rural and urban kids from ages 8-18 an opportunity to learn about family farms, co-ops and social justice.
Kids learn while having fun at our beautiful camp facility on the shores of Lake Wissota near Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin (just north of Eau Claire). Activities include team games, speakers & workshops, hikes & campfires, theme nights, art/music/drama, folk dancing, swimming and sports.
Cooperative teamwork and leadership skills are a part of all camp activities. In addition, campers learn how a co-op business operates; they create their own co-op store, elect a board of directors, buy shares, vote on issues and receive patronage refunds based on their purchases of snacks and camp souvenirs.
Camp fees are reasonable ($75-$85 for 4-5 day overnight camp sessions). Additional family membership fee of $30 required for non-WFU members. Campers stay in rustic cabins with facilities. EMT/nurse/first responder and lifeguard on staff. WFU Kamp Kenwood is a state-regulated camp with a staff/camper ratio of 1:7. We secure products and services from local farmers, businesses and co-ops whenever possible.
Check out a session that is right for your family and friends...and see you at WFU Kamp Kenwood!
