Field trips just got more fun with Farm Camp
Farm Camp Minnesota is a three-day immersive agriculture experience customized for your classroom bringing 5th–12th grade learners to the farm. It's comprised of three parts: In-Classroom Learning, Hands-On Tour, and Career Exploration.
Through the use of MAITC lessons, students gain an understanding of a specific agricultural product to support learning prior to their on-farm experience. Pre-visit lessons set students up for a successful on-site experience by growing their agricultural literacy. During Farm Camp, educators and agricultural producers create a dynamic hands-on experience for each student while allowing the Ag-Host to share their story.

How Farm Camp Minnesota Helps Enhance Agricultural Literacy
As part of the Minnesota Agriculture in the Classroom (MAITC), Inc. Foundation's mission to enhance agricultural literacy, Farm Camp Minnesota introduces students to the wonders of agriculture and strengthens their understanding of the fiber, fuel and food system. Through the use of MAITC lessons, students gain knowledge about specific agricultural products before their on-farm or agribusiness experience. These pre-visit lessons lay the foundation for a successful on-site experience by growing students' agricultural literacy.
During Farm Camp, educators and agricultural producers collaborate to create a dynamic and interactive learning environment for each student. Through hands-on tours and activities, students engage with various aspects of farming and learn directly from knowledgeable Ag-Hosts who share their stories and expertise.
