Parent Info

Hello FFA Members Parent’s and Guardian’s!

Your child will soon have an opportunity to participate in our FFA Summer Camp program.  FFA Summer Camp offers hands-on experience in leadership development, conservation education and recreation.  A variety of activities and all-camp evening programs ensure an exciting experience for the campers.

An Emergency Stat Care facility is within 15 minutes and two hospitals are within 50 minutes of our site.  Every student is covered by insurance while attending the program.

There is no requirement that students undergo a medical examination before attending FFA Summer Camp.  The program is physically intensive, however, and you may wish to consult your physician if there are any health concerns that should be brought to the attention of the staff.  Such guidance will assist them in planning the program of activities with the students.  Please note any special concerns on the Student Health form. The form must be completed before a camper can attend.  All medications must be listed on the form and turned in to the Camp Nurse in the original container.  Health and safety are our most important objectives.

A clothing and equipment checklist is provided.  Particular care should be taken in supplying ample footwear and pants, as students sometimes participate in activities regardless of rain and mud.  Clothes should be chosen for comfort and durability, rather than style.

Meals are prepared by a permanent cooking staff and served family style.  Special dietary needs should be noted on the medical form and the teacher/camp should be notified prior to the arrival of the campers.  Students, visiting teachers, and chaperones are lodged in dormitory housing.   The telephone is not available for the students’ use, and parents are asked not to call students, except in case of an emergency.

If you are interested in mailing a letter to your child, allow 4 days for delivery.  Mail posted midweek may not reach FFA Camp Muskingum until Friday, after the group has left.  Please include the name of both the student and school to assist delivery.  Mail should be sent to:  Ohio FFA Camp Muskingum, 3266 Dyewood Road, SW, Carrollton, Ohio 44615.

The Camp Staff look forward to spending time with your FFA Member during their FFA Camp experience.  We are confident that it will be a wonderful time.  If  you have any questions or concerns feel free to call or email us.
