Dates, Rates & Deadlines      

 
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. 

Explanation of Early Registration Price: If you submit your Registration and Deposit before the Early Registration Deadline then the early registration fee applies. If you register or add students after the deadline then students pay the increased rate. 


Deposit Policy      
  • Deposits equal student slots for you 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 in the module to the right.

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.
  • Advisors of FFA and FCCLA chapters.
  • Adult Chaperones: Advisors are responsible for ensuring at least 1 adult per 10 students. If you bring more than 5 students of a single gender, you MUST arrange an advisor or chaperone to stay with them. 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      
  • Dr. Al Snyder will return to perform a hypnotist show.
  • The new Dining Hall is projected to open for SLC!
  • Registration change: 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 weeks 5 and 6. We hope that some advisors with young children will opt for these
    later weeks which will help balance the weeks.
  • The Thursday afternoon event will be a special team event instead of the mud course. We will
    continue to rotate the mud course with a different team challenge every other year.
  • Remember that the first 3 weeks will likely fill in minutes. We strongly recommend that chapters
    consider the last 3 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, last year we 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!)
