State Fair Virtual Day Camp
The Colorado Foundation for Agriculture is teaming up with the Colorado State Fair to offer virtual Day Camps for students.
The foundation’s Executive Director Jennifer Sharpe tells Colorado Ag Today the camps will be held online over 4 days during the fair.
Sharpe:” The content is geared toward 3rd to 5th graders, but it’s open to families and children of all ages. The goal is to take a little bit of fair flavor and a little bit of fun and education and combine them all together in these virtual camps. They’ll be held via Zoom as well as broadcast on the Colorado State Fair website. There’ll be a daily food preparation activity from Chef Jason Morse. There’ll be several different agriculture-related topics and some hands-on demonstrations from the CSU Agriculture students.”
The virtual day camps will run from August 31 through September 3 from 330 pm to 5 pm. The virtual day camps are free and folks can register early through the Colorado State Fair website. The camps will be posted on the website for kids who were unable to join live.
The Colorado State Fair is mostly virtual this summer due to COVID but the organizers are still encouraging families to consider a safe and socially distanced trip to Pueblo for the drive-through activities during the 11 day fair.
