The cooperative strives to share these opportunities with our membership, including several features in our MilkLine newsletters. Annual youth dairy camps are hosted by state universities including Wisconsin, Minnesota and South Dakota. Kamp Kenwood is also a great youth opportunity, where camp attendees can learn more about the benefits that exist as a cooperative member and the value of a grassroots organization. Sponsored by the Wisconsin Farmer's Union, Kamp Kenwood is available to youth throughout the summer for various ages. Below are links to each of these camps where you can find more information. PDPW also hosts their annual Youth Derby, focusing on exposing youth ages 15 – 18 years old to a variety of dairy-related careers.
Interested membership youth should contact the office for available sponsorship opportunities. Don't delay! Camp registrations are often limited to the first 100 campers, so if you're interested, contact the FarmFirst office today! Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 608-244-3373.
