MFU Day Camps

2020 MFU Day Camps

DAY CAMPS WITH A COUNTRY SPIN 

Depending on the Coronavirus, MFU hopes to move forward with our Montana Farmers Union’s Summer Day Camp season which runs June through August. Day camp hours are 9 a.m. – 3pm. Schools, community centers, parks and churches make for great day camp locations. The Camp location does not need to have a kitchen, but it must have restroom facilities. We ask that campers bring a sack lunch and a water bottle. Also, please make sure campers dress appropriately for the day’s activities and weather. We will need some assistance in spreading the word. If your group is larger than 10 children we request a volunteer
to help with the camp. Day camps are designed for campers to pick up information related to agriculture, community and cooperatives while having fun. MFU organizes these programs with your assistance
to be grade and age appropriate. Children must be a least eight years old to attend. MFU offers 100 different educational programs at no cost. There is a list of these different programs on our website.

Here are some examples of the educational programs we offer:

• My Favorite Pet – Learn how to take
care of animals.
• Worm Farming and Composting –
Play in the dirt.
• Planning Your Garden – Plan a garden
space by looking at soil condition
and lighting for optimum production.
• Reduce, Reuse and Recycle – How to
reduce waste.
• Read the Label – How to read the label
on the chemicals you use.
• Food Recovery and Second Time Dishes –
How to stretch your grocery dollars.
• Nutritional for Livestock-What our animals
should and shouldn’t eat.
• Farm Safety – Tips on how to prevent accidents
and respond in case of an emergency.
• Renewable energy – What it is and how it
can save energy and money?

Don’t let your children sit idle. Have them join us and stay connected with their friends this summer by attending a MFU day camp! If you are interested in putting together a day camp please contact Vicky Jo Reeves 406.452.6406 or at vreeves@montanafarmersunion.com.
