Frequently Asked Questions      
Who Can Go To Camp?
Any dues-paid member of a Georgia FFA or FCCLA chapter who would be a good representative of their chapter and school. All students must attend with their chapter - no individual registrations are accepted.

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.

What's Included In The Registration Fee?
Cost includes all meals, lodging, programs, and a t-shirt.

There are a few things at camp that cost extra, such as snacks from the canteen, craft kits in the craftshop, and ammunition at the shooting range.

SLC is one of the least expensive camps in the country (just Google around and see!) but we know that it's still tough to pay for camp. We encourage you to work with your chapter to do fundraisers and ask for scholarships from your community to help pay for camp.

How Long Is SLC?
The camp runs Monday afternoon through Friday morning. The days are packed, and you will stay busy!

Lodging & Meals      
Lodging:
During your week of camp, you will stay in bunk cabins with campers from your chapter, as well as, from other chapters.  This is a great way to get to know different people! Don't forget to bring items to make your bed, such as pillow and sleeping bag and/or sheets and a blanket.  You will also need to bring all of your personal items like towels, washcloths, soap, shampoo, toothbrush, and toothpaste.

Meals:
Camp John Hope FFA-FCCLA is perhaps best known for its excellent food. The Center Staff provides all meals at the facility. Click HERE to view a sample menu.

Rules, Policies, & Dress Code

Team of the Week      
There are two "Team of the Week" awards which will be awarded on Thursday night:

1. Competition Team of the Week
Throughout the week, teams earn points by competing in various events. At the end of the week, the team with the most points earns the title "Team of the Week." The competitions include team events such as kickball, volleyball, swim meet, relay race, and the obstacle course. There are also individual competitions such as basketball, crafts, soccer kick, football toss, quiz bowl, fishing, Airsoft, and archery. Only dues-paid FFA or FCCLA members can compete in the Team of the Week competitions. High School Seniors that graduate in the spring can compete during that summer. Children and adults are not permitted to compete. Advisors will receive detailed rules and explanations when they arrive at camp. There are tentative rules included in the Advisor Guide.

2. Leadership Team of the Week
Teams are evaluated by other teams and the staff throughout the week on leadership, teamwork, sportsmanship, and attitude. The team that best displays the overall values of SLC will win Leadership Team of the Week.
