Last year's Fair Campers had this to say about their experience:

"..."Thank you for choosing me to do Fair Camp. I especially enjoyed showing a sheep and taking care of a calf. I will not forget this weekend..."

"...Fair Camp was a very unique, exciting experience. My son is still talking about Fair Camp. He said it was the best part of his summer…”

"...My daughter and I really had a great time. I was amazed at all the things we did and how wonderful everyone was to us..."

“...[Fair Camp is a] great experience. It gives you a different perspective on the Fair after seeing what happens behind the scenes...”
