Gopher Dairy Camp

The 2022 Gopher Dairy Camp was a great success! 35 campers were in attendance from across Minnesota to take part in nearly three days filled with dairy-related activities. Campers learned essential skills through workshops and practiced with the heifers to prepare for the showmanship contest that we hosted on the last day of camp, which families of the campers were invited to attend. There were many other fun events such as the fun with dairy foods workshop, a farm tour to Autumnwood Farms, and even a trip to Skyzone! Not only did the campers have a blast learning about the dairy industry, but they had the chance to connect with peers who share their same interests. We were so incredibly thrilled to bring back this event after hosting a virtual camp for 2021 and having a cancellation in 2020. Thank you so much to all who made this camp possible and continue to support this amazing event for 4-H youth! Without the support of volunteers and sponsors, this event would not be possible. We are looking forward to hosting camp once again in 2023 on the St. Paul campus!  

Sincerely,

2022 Camp Co-chairs Mikayla Peper & Matthew Gunst
