FFA-FCCLA Summer Leadership Camp
During the first five weeks of summer, we engage in five sessions of FFA-FCCLA Summer Leadership Camp - a week long camp for FFA and FCCLA students from across Georgia. It is a leadership and recreation-based camp for middle school and high school chapters. During this camp, we provide everything - meals, lodging, recreation and program.
Campers for Leadership Camp arrive Monday morning and depart Friday morning. Staff report on Sunday afternoon and are released on Friday when the camp is clean (typically mid-afternoon).
Summer Staff operate the recreation areas, participate in assemblies and other programs, and help the campers have a great time. Some of the assignments during Summer Leadership Camp include:
The days are long - a typical day starts with breakfast 7:30 AM and ends back at your cabin around midnight. Staff stay in the staff cabins, not in cabins with campers. For more information about Summer Leadership Camp, visit the Summer Camp Page.

After FFA-FCCLA Summer Leadership Camp
After Summer Leadership Camp, there are three types of camps that will be running - Wildlife Camps, Horse Camps, and rental groups.
The Wildlife Camps are week-long programs that our facility hosts to youth from the general public. During these camps, some of the summer staff will be fully dedicated to the program, including staying in the cabin with the campers. Some of the staff will continue servicing the rental groups during this time, but will likely have some part to play in the Wildlife Camps.
The Horse Camps are week-long programs that are open to girls ages 10-13. Some of the staff (primarily the horseback riding program staff) will be fully dedicated to this program. These programs run during the same weeks as Wildlife Camps.
We will also rent facilities to organizations. Our largest rental groups are church youth groups and children camps. For these groups we continue offering meals, lodging, and recreation, but we do not offer programs and assemblies. Summer staff will be involved in servicing these groups, mostly through operating the recreational areas and food service.
