Building and Achieving Success In Chapters!

BASIC is a field trip program designed for any student organization.

We have developed affordable programs that are designed to teach teambuilding and leadership skills to students in an exciting and hands-on environment. The goal is to develop your student chapter into a successful and effective team. All aspects of the program are flexible and can be tailored to your needs and goals.

Eligibilty:The program is designed for officer teams, entire chapters, or multiple chapters. The program is not limited to FFA or FCCLA organizations - any school organization is welcome. We recommend multiple chapters participate in the program together. We require a minimum of 10 participants.

Program Activities      
The program is flexible, but may consist of:
  • Team Initiatives - Using a variety of challenges, we will introduce your students to concepts that are important for a successful team. 
  • Low Ropes Course - We will utilize challenging elements on our low-ropes style course. These elements will help students develop and use the team and leadership concepts that they are learning. 
  • Traditional Obstacle course (on the ball field) - We will use our fun and exciting course that tests students on the concepts they have learned in a competitive environment. Students get dirty!
  • Mud Obstacle Course (New in 2012!) - The Mud Course will test the students' ability to work together in a team environment. Students get VERY muddy and have a blast!
  • High Ropes Course - The high ropes course offers a more time-intensive but challenging aspect. The high ropes are designed more to develop confidence and achievement in individual team members. 
  • Archery Attack - A hybrid of archery, paintball, and dodgeball, students will use bows to shoot foam-tipped arrows in a competitive elimination-style team activity.
  • Team Recreation - Enjoying games such as softball and volleyball, the students can have fun while applying the team concepts they have learned. 
  • Archives - Students learn the history of the FFA and FCCLA in the Brown Center Archives. They discover where their organization has been and where they can take it!
  • Chapter Planning - This is a time for advisors to spend with students planning and scheduling chapter events.
  • Meals and Lodging - The Georgia FFA-FCCLA Center is capable of providing excellent meals and comfortable lodging for participants.
