For so many of us, summer as a kid meant camp. We went for a variety of different reasons – the group games, the campfires, or even the camp food. But most of all, we went because of the friends we made each year. For many Minnesotan’s, Minnesota Farmers Union (MFU) summer camps have been a staple of their summer and the place where they’ve made lifelong connections that are still strong today.

In 2023, MFU celebrates the 80th anniversary of our summer leadership camps. In honor of this milestone, we’re enhancing the camp experience for everyone by finding new ways to engage with our campers and our alumni. With your donation to the program, you’ll be able to show your support for a camp that means so much to so many. This year, the funds raised will go towards the following initiatives:

  • Creating new transportation options for our camp families. We know that driving your child to camp can be a difficult time commitment, so we’re working on making it easier and more accessible for children across the state to get to camp.
  • Organizing a service project for the Statewide Senior Camp. MFU is dedicated to providing opportunities for our campers to give back to their communities, and what better way to do so than to organize and fun and engaging service project at camp!
  • Pay increases for our summer camp staff. Our camp staff are critical to the success of our summer programs, and we can show them how important they are to us by providing them with an increase in pay for the tireless work they do each summer.

We need your help to make these special projects a reality! With a goal of $5,000, we can come together and make a real impact for our campers. Your generosity means so much to us, and we can’t thank you enough!

Minnesota Farmers Union (MFU) exists to advance the interests of its family farmer members through the principles of legislation, education and cooperation. The Farmers Union Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, was established in 1958 to advance the educational mission of Minnesota Farmers Union. Since then, the Foundation has helped members and the general public learn about farming and farm cooperatives, their history and present challenges and opportunities. 

The Foundation provides summer camps for youth designed to introduce them to agriculture and cooperatives, advances the Minnesota Cooks program to educate consumers about farming and to create new market opportunities, supports 4-H and FFA programs and provides scholarships to members and members’ children who are pursuing educational opportunities.
