Farmers Union Camp Program
We are sorry to announce the decision to cancel or postpone all Farmers Union programming and rental use at WFU Kamp Kenwood for the summer of 2020. Though we had been developing procedures to move forward with guidelines set by the CDC, American Camp Association, and public health authorities, concerns about camper well-being and liability were deciding factors. If you have any questions, please contact Cathy Statz, Education Director/Camp Director at 715-214-7887 or firstname.lastname@example.org
ABOUT OUR CAMP
Generations of families have spent time each summer at Kamp Kenwood. In the 1940s, Wisconsin Farmers Union President Ken Hones began advocating for leadership training for farm boys and girls, believing that education was the cornerstone of a better future for rural communities. Farmers Union members from across the state donated their time and treasure 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.
Located along beautiful Lake Wissota near Chippewa Falls, the camp is the ideal spot for youth from all across the Midwest to gather for cooperation, leadership and fun. Our education programs focus on cooperatives, family farms, sustainability, leadership, conservation, rural communities, social justice, and active citizenship. Our overnight camp activities include:
hiking and campfires
swimming and sports
singing and drama
speakers and workshops
co-op games and theme nights
arts and crafts
Just as they have for generations, Wisconsin Farmers Union Summer Youth Camps promise a summer experience that kids won’t forget. Learn more about a Day in the Life of a Camper. We hope you’ll join us this year!.
