Openings remain for Dakota City youth camps
Several openings remain in the summer youth day camps scheduled at Dakota City Heritage Village in Farmington. Registration must be made by June 10. The day camps will run Mondays through Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
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 17 to 20. 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. Youth ages six through 12 are invited to attend Apprentice Day Camp, which is offered June 24 to 27, July 15 to 18 and July 22 to 25. 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 what it was like to be an immigrant in 1900.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 W. 220th St. on the fairgrounds in Farmington.
