Lodging & Meals      
Lodging will be in bunk cabins. These are very nice, new bunk cabins with A/C and heat, and they have nice bathrooms inside the cabin. There are mattresses on the beds and toilet paper in the stalls - you will need to bring everything else. Groups will be divided by different gender groups (example - one cabin for male adults with male children, one cabin for female adults with female children, etc.)

The Georgia FFA-FCCLA Center provides excellent meals - not your traditional camp food. Let the camp know if you have special needs (example - vegetarian, severe food allergies, etc)
