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) You will send a deposit for the number of students you register. If you send a deposit for less than you registered, you will be invoiced for the remaining deposits. (2) These students are dues-paid members of FFA or FCCLA. (3) 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.

Completed 8th Graders: FFA or FCCLA members who have just completed the 8th grade in the current year may attend. 

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. They may receive a reduced rate only if they are not FFA or FCCLA members. If they are not 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 Two: send your deposit check      

We must receive your deposit check within two weeks of completing the Online Registration Form. The deposit must match what you submit online or you will be billed for the difference. See Deposit Policies below. A Deposit Invoice will be emailed to you upon submission of the SLC Registration Form. 

Deposit Policy

Deposits equal student slots for your chapter.

  • Deposits are non-refundable and forfeited if you cancel or if your number of students decreases.
  • You MUST send a deposit for the number of students that you registered online. If you send a deposit for less than you registered, you will be invoiced for the remaining deposits.
  • Deposits for a cancelled student will not be applied to the balance for your chapter. Forfeited deposits will not be applied to advisor or child payments.
  • No deposit required for advisors, chaperones, or children of advisors (if child is coming at the reduced rate).
  • The Deposit is part of the total cost.
  • You CAN substitute another student from your chapter for a cancelled student from your chapter prior to arrival.
  • Deposits can be transferred to another chapter only if the chapters are in the same system AND payment for the two chapters is being made with one check.
  • If your chapter pays the full registration fee prior to camp, and a student cancels, you may receive a refund for that student's fee less the deposit for that student.
  • There will be no exceptions to this policy.

Payment Methods

  • Check or cash are accepted. Credit cards are not accepted.
  • Please makes checks payable to Georgia FFA-FCCLA Center.
  • Separate advisor receipts are available.
  • Note that we can only give a receipt in an advisor's name if the payment comes directly from the advisor.

Deposit Invoices and Payment Invoices are available. 

Step Three: updates      

Rules for making changes:

  • To drop a student - you forfeit the deposit for any dropped student.
  • To make an even swap (substituting one student for another student) - there is no change to the price.
  • To add a paying adult or child - if the week is still open, you can simply add an adult or advisor's child at the current price. No deposit needed.
  • To add a student - Contact us to make sure we can still accept more students. 
  • To drop an adult or child - no penalty.
