Farm Camp Mission
The mission of Farm Camp is to share the story of agriculture and increase agricultural literacy of K-12 students and educators through agricultural experiences/destination classrooms and the exceptional resources of Minnesota Agriculture in the Classroom. Careers in agriculture are accessible and plentiful no matter where you live in Minnesota, Farm Camp experiences will bring that fact to each encounter, demystifying the thought that all ag careers require a tractor.
The Farm Camp experience provides resources and experiences for students and teachers to see the agricultural curricular concepts used in the classroom in a real-world setting. Farm Camp is an excellent example of improving existing curricula through an integrated approach. The added value of Farm Camp is a destination classroom/laboratory experience. Enhanced tools include the Farm Camp website, providing a complete digital coordination toolkit. The Farm Camp Program Director has outlined an arsenal of Minnesota Agriculture in the Classroom agriculture-based resources for educators to use prior to and after the Farm Camp Ag-Host experience, in addition to evaluations.
