Summer camp at Sibley State Park, New London, Minn.


NEW LONDON - Without a doubt, tears were shed at Sibley State Park on Friday morning.

It's a ritual that goes back a few decades. Since possibly sometime in the 1970s, Sibley State Park's group center has been host to summer camps offered by the Minnesota Farmers Union. The annual camps are an opportunity for young people to build leadership skills, make new friends and enjoy the outdoors.
