Check-In Info      
Times
Check-In on Monday will be from 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM
 
New Location
We are moving Check-In to the new Ag Center on camp. We will have signs and staff directing you, but it is the first driveway on the right after you pull onto Camp Road. 
By doing Check-In at the Ag Center, you will be able to drive straight to your cabin when you get into the main camp. That should help with traffic congestion!
 
Roster and Release Forms
If you have submitted your Final Registration Roster and all of your students have completed their Release Forms, then Check-In will go quickly. Both are due on Wednesday before you arrive. I have attached a list of names of students we have received release forms from. 
 
Medications
Tell your students to keep medications packed in a way that is easily accessible. Bring in any controlled medications when you check in. Remember they must be in the original prescription bottle, and should only be enough for the week of camp. Daily pill sorters are not permitted. 
 
Advisor/Chaperone Forms 
Every adult must submit the Advisor/Chaperone Expectations form. The 2020 Advisor / Chaperone Forms are coming soon!
 
Payment
Please bring the balance to check-in. Remember deposits are forfeited if your number drops, but we can reimburse balance payments if you overpay. We accept cash or checks. 
We do NOT accept personal checks from parents or students but we will accept personal checks from advisors.
 
Door Prizes
You can earn points for your team by bringing a door prize per team. Usually about a $10 value. They are due Tuesday by noon if you want points.

Welcome!      
We are excited about having you at SLC! This guide is designed to give you all the information you need to plan a successful trip to camp. Please take some time to explore all the information, and feel free to contact us if you have any questions!

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. If advisor children participate in the Pre-Camper Program, their registration is the same as students. 

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.

Late Registration Policy: If a chapter registers after Wednesday, April 15, 2020, the chapter will be asked to pay a late registration fee. Late registration will be $210 per person. 

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 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.
  • We accept personal checks from advisors, but we will not accept personal checks from students or parents.
  • Deposit Invoices and Payment Invoices are available. 

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.
  • 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.

What's New      
  • Note the Late Registration rates. If a chapter registers after Wednesday, April 15, 2020, the chapter will be asked to pay a late registration fee. Late registration will be $210 per person. 
  • We will continue to utilize Online Medical Forms! 
  • We have expanded the Large County Registration. If you come to camp with chapters from an adjacent county, and you have at least 60 people together, you can register on Large County Registration Day. 
  • We will limit the number of people that can register for a week during Large
    County Registration. No more than ½ of capacity can be filled on Large County Registration.
  • Pre-Camper Program: If there is enough demand, we will offer a daily program for Advisor
    Children for week 5. We hope that some advisors with young children will opt for this
    later week, which will help balance the weeks.
  • Remember that the first 3 weeks will likely fill in minutes. We strongly recommend that chapters
    consider the last 2 weeks to avoid having to change plans due to a week that is full. If you plan to
    come for one of the first 3 weeks, we recommend having a backup plan for one of the later weeks.
  • As a reminder, we have made some changes for chaperones. 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.
  • 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!)

Rules, Policies and Dress Code      
Because this is Leadership Camp and a school function, we have strict rules. It is critical that you are aware of these rules before camp and understand the consequences of not following the rules.

Schedule      
The camp runs Monday morning through Friday morning. The days are packed, and you will stay busy!
