Mesaba Co-op Park is seeking applicants for its summer youth arts camp. The Co-op enjoys a lengthy political and historical tradition on the west side of Cherry Township, but often overlooked is its tradition as a social gathering place.
The 17th annual Northstar Arts Camp will be held June 20-23 at Mesaba Co-op Park near Hibbing. This year’s theme is “Play in the Park,” and features musician and educator Oscar Forsman, theatre artists Peggy and Tim White and KAXE naturalist John Latimer. Campers, aged 8-13, spend four days at the Park from 10 AM – 4 PM, enjoying nature, producing and performing a stage play, and participating in a live broadcast on KAXE radio. Cost for the arts day camp is $80 per child and includes lunch, snacks and materials. Funding for the camp is provided by: the Robert L. “Butch” Hamre Fund of the Hibbing Foundation, Elizabeth Ewen’s John E. Forichette Memorial Trust and Lake Country Power Operation Round-up. The camp is co-sponsored by Hibbing Community Education. For more information contact David Bednarczuk at 218 262-5132 or Northstar Foundation, P O Box 293, Hibbing MN 55746
