Advisor Special: One free advisor per 10 students from a single chapter. This applies only to individual chapters. You must have 10 students actually attend in order to get the free advisor.

Chaperone Special: Registration is free for non-advisor adult chaperones (such as a parent) that are needed to supervise a gender of students if there is not an advisor for both genders. The chaperone must stay in the cabin with students to qualify. 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.

Advisor Children: Children of advisors age 4 and up may receive the reduced rate only if they are not FFA or FCCLA members. They will not be allowed to compete in "Team of the Week" competitions during the week. Children 3 and under are free. 

When money is due: The deposit per student is required to register. Deposit must be received within two weeks of online registration form submission. Balance is due upon arrival at camp. Advisors may send the advisor's registration balance after camp.


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 canceled 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 canceled 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 Camp John Hope 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.
- We accept personal checks from advisors, but we will not accept personal checks from students or parents.
- Deposit Invoices and Payment Invoices are available on the registration page.

Who Can You Bring to Camp?      
  • Members: Any middle school 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. 
  • 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.

What's New?      
  • Due to construction, space is VERY limited! It is important you be as accurate as possible with numbers and genders during registration!  
  • 3 weeks will be for middle schools only!!
  • SLC at BOTH facilities will be the same price.
  • Archery Attack! 
  • To avoid potential issues, we are reminding teachers that if you are attending SLC during your post planning, you may not use those days for extended year days.
  • Of course, there will be other new changes (and surprises!)
