Welcome!      

We are making significant changes to the 2021 Summer Leadership Camp due to COVID-19. Please note that these changes are temporary to allow us to have camp this year. We will be implementing necessary changes to be in compliance with state guidelines and American Camp Association recommendations. The reflected changes were developed based on capacity restrictions, budget, and the overall health and safety of our campers. Please note the following changes listed below: 

Summary of Registration Changes

  • Capacity of each week will be limited:
    • Camp John Hope: Approximately 85 people per week
  • All advisors and chaperones are full price ($200)
  • Advisor children 4 and up are full price ($200)
  • No pre-camper programs for advisor children

In the coming months we will be working on a plan on how to develop teams in the safest manner possible, using the Governor's current executive order and CDC guidelines. 

We will take into consideration any guidelines individual school systems may have as well.


Who Can you Bring to Camp?      
  • Members: Any dues-paid member of your FFA or FCCLA Chapter who you believe will be a good representative of your chapter and school. All students must attend with their chapter - no individual registrations are accepted. IMPORTANT NOTE: By registering students you agree:  (1) These students are dues-paid members of FFA or FCCLA. (2) You will bring or pre-arrange an adult chaperone for males and females if you bring them.

  • Advisors of FFA and FCCLA chapters. If you are attending SLC during your post planning, you may not use those days for extended year days.

  • Adult Chaperones: Advisors are responsible for ensuring at least 1 adult per 10 students. You must arrange an advisor or chaperone for EVERY gender of students you bring. If you do not have enough chaperones, contact another advisor before camp to make arrangements. Inform the camp of any arrangements at least one week prior to camp. All chaperones must be at least 21 years of age. They must be approved by your school administration and follow your school's chaperone policies. Chaperones must sign the Advisor Expectations form and follow all camp policies.

  • Graduated Seniors: Graduated senior FFA or FCCLA members who graduated in the current year may attend. Anyone who graduated high school before the current year may NOT participate as a member.

  • Advisor Children: Children of advisors may attend. Advisor children ages 4 and up will NOT receive a reduced rate and will be asked to pay the full registration amount of $200. If they are not FFA/FCCLA members, they will not be allowed to compete in "Team of the Week" competitions during the week. Check with your school system to ensure that there are no additional restrictions on bringing your child to camp. Children age 3 and under are free. Children age 5 and over cannot stay in the cabin of the opposite gender.

Step One: Complete the Online Pre-Registration Form      

If your chapter intends on attending Summer Leadership Camp, you must submit your Pre-Registration form. 

*Note: All chapters who intend on attending SLC will complete their pre-registration on the same day. We will NOT have a Large County Registration day. Pre-Registration will be a time-sensitive registration process. Pre-Registration will open promptly at 7:00 AM on February 24th. Weeks will fill quickly, and registrations will be processed in the order that they are received. 

The pre-registration link will allow you to secure your week of summer camp. A maximum of 35 chapters will be allowed to register for each week of SLC. Individual chapter capacity will be determined based on the total number of chapters registered for each week of SLC.

*NEW - County Registrations: County registrations will be accepted on the pre-registration date. On the pre-registration form, you will be required to indicate the total number of chapters that you are registering for. You will only be allowed to register chapters within your county. A maximum number of 10 chapters can be registered under 1 pre-registration. Ex. April Davis will complete the pre-registration process on behalf of Jackson County Schools. April will indicate on the pre-registration form that she will be registering for 10 schools.

  • After you submit your Pre-Registration form, the advisor that completed the pre-registration form will be required to complete a Breakdown of Chapters form that you have registered for. A form will be provided for you to complete. Only one breakdown of chapters form will need to be completed. The Breakdown of Chapters form will be due by 5:00 PM on Pre-Registration day. Ex. April Davis will complete the Breakdown of Chapters form on behalf of Jackson County Schools.

Pre-Registration Opens:

Date: February 24, 2021

Time: 7:00 AM – 5:00 PM

*Note: ALL SLC Pre-Registrations must be submitted by 5:00 PM on Pre-Registration Day. Pre-Registration will close promptly at 5:00 PM. Contact the Center if you need to register beyond Pre-Registration Day.

*Note: ALL SLC Breakdown of Chapters forms must be submitted by 5:00 PM on Pre-Registration Day.

The registration link will become active at this time.

Weeks will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Note: Some weeks may reach capacity within minutes of registration opening (typically the earlier weeks). Please identify a second-choice week in case your week is full.

Note: Deposits are NOT required this year.

Preview what the form will look like in the module to the right! This is a PDF of what the form will look like, so you can be prepared to enter information faster.


Step Two: Complete the Online Registration Form      

All advisors who participated in the Pre-Registration will be asked to individually submit their chapter's information in the Registration form. 

*Note: Registration opens at 7 AM and closes at 5 PM. 

The registration link will require you to list your confirmed total number of individuals.  The total number of individuals must reflect the total number of students, total number of advisors, total number of chaperones, and total number of advisor kids. You can register up to the indicated chapter capacity for your chosen week of camp. Individual chapter capacities will be provided to you at the conclusion of the Pre-Registration day. In addition to your total number of individuals, you will be asked to provide a breakdown of males and females. We will use this information to determine if additional space is available for each week of SLC. Note: Advisors are responsible for ensuring at least 1 adult per 10 students. You must arrange an advisor or chaperone for EVERY gender of students you bring.

IMPORTANT: Your chapter will be responsible for paying for the number of individuals you register on this day.

  • If you have a student cancel after this day, you will only be charged $100 for that student.
  • If you have a student cancel after this day due to a significant medical concern, there will not be a charge for that student.
  • If a student is unable to attend due to failing the medical pre-screening, there will not be a charge for that student. The medical pre-screening procedures will be sent to teachers at a later date. 
  • No Deposit is due to secure spots. Full balance is due upon arrival.

Registration Opens:

Date: March 24, 2021

Time: 7:00 AM – 5:00 PM

*Note: ALL SLC registrations must be submitted by 5:00 PM on Registration Day. Registration will close promptly at 5:00 PM. Contact the Center if you need to register beyond Registration Day.


Step Three: Updates      

Email the camp if you have any changes to your numbers or male/female breakdown.

  • If you have students cancel any time after the March 24th Registration, you will be charged a $100 fee, not the full $200 registration fee, for each student that cancels.
  • If you have a student cancel after this day due to a significant medical concern, there will not be a charge for that student.
  • If a student is unable to attend due to failing the medical pre-screening, there will not be a charge for that student. The medical screening procedures will be sent to teachers at a later date. 

Based on completed registrations, we will determine if additional space is available for each week of SLC.

We will update you with information regarding additional space if it becomes available. 


Step Four: Complete the Online Medical Forms      

Online Medical Forms will become available in April 1, 2021.

  • Use the link located in the module to the right to complete the online medical form.
  • Medical Forms are due May 10th.

Step Five: Complete the Online Final Registration Roster      
Final Registration Rosters will become available on April 1, 2021. Rosters are due on May 10th. Even if you anticipate that some changes may occur, it is important that you complete the Final Registration Roster.

Step Six: Check in at Camp!
