I attended cow camp in Michigan this year for the first time, and from my experiences, I plan on going next year!
For me, cow camp made me much more confident in myself to handle my own animal. Cow camp was about doing it all on your own, with no help from the adults unless you really needed it. The adults knew you could handle your animal, wash them, and do your chores by yourself. They just wanted YOU to realize it. I think each and every kid that was there now knows they can handle their own calf all by themselves; and they want to show it off that they can!
During cow camp, we had numerous activities to do throughout the weekend. For example fishing, swimming, and making your own farm signs, washing your calf, and much, much more. I?d have to say that the drivers? lesson with Sue Dyke was definitely my favorite part! There was never a boring moment either; you were always having a fun time with everyone!
I recommend going to cow camp next year! It is a lot of fun. Your confidence level goes up so much during the weekend and a smile is literally stuck on your face the whole entire time! You make new friendships with other youth, and your relationship with your calf grows stronger as well!
