According to education coordinator Alisa Peterson, one session of Teen Volunteer Camp is planned along with three sessions of Apprentice Day Camp.
The Teen Volunteer Camp, offered to youth 13 and older, who would like to volunteer in Dakota City, is scheduled for June 25-28. The camp will focus on training and hands-on activities so these youth will be able to volunteer during the Apprentice Day Camps, the Dakota County Fair and other events. The training offered this year will be different from last year. Space will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
Youth ages 6 through 12 are invited to attend Apprentice Day Camp, which is offered July 9-12, July 16-19 and July 30-Aug. 2. They will experience life in the early 1900s by helping with chores, participating in a country school day and doing hands-on activities from that time period. They also will learn about local and state government in 1900, famous and important people of the time, health, games and inventions at the turn of the century. Peterson said each Apprentice Camp session will be limited to 24 participants.
The cost for all camps will be $125 per youth with campers asked to bring their own lunches and a beverage each day. Families must furnish their own transportation to Dakota City, located at 4008-220th St. W. on the fairgrounds in Farmington.
