Farmers Union Camp Program
Farmers Union Youth Camp
ABOUT OUR CAMP
Located along beautiful Lake Wissota near Chippewa Falls, Farmers Union Camps at Kamp Kenwood draw hundreds of youth from throughout the Midwest each summer. Campers enjoy all the traditional fun of summer camp - hiking, swimming, campfires, and more -- while also being immersed in adventures centered around Wisconsin agriculture, cooperatives, and leadership.
Farmers Union Camps at Kamp Kenwood have been home to summer fun for generations. In the 1940s, Wisconsin Farmers Union President Ken Hones began advocating for leadership training, believing that education was the cornerstone of a better future for rural communities. Wisconsin Farmers Union members from across the state donated their time and funds to build a summer camp where youth could come together to have fun and learn. Named after the visionary who inspired this work, Kamp Kenwood’s 23 acres feature rustic cabins, hiking trails, sandy beaches, and a dining/activities lodge. View the camp map here.
Just as they have for generations, Wisconsin Farmers Union Summer Youth Camps promise a summer experience that kids won’t forget.
