Ohio Farm Bureau will again be partnering with Ohio FFA to hold the Ohio Leadership Camp. It will be held June 25-28 at Ohio FFA Camp in Carrollton. The cost is $175 per camper. Ohio Leadership Camp is open to Farm Bureau youth as well as FFA, DECA, FCCLA, HOSA, and SkillsUSA students. Sessions will be delivered by the National FFA as an Advanced Leadership Development Conference and allows students to build their leadership skills, participate in team bonding tasks and create friendships with other youth from across Ohio.
Please click here for the brochure for more information on the Ohio Leadership Camp. Parents can find pertinent camp and safety information here. Campers must be high school students for the upcoming 2021-2022 school year.
Morrow County Farm Bureau will provide sponsorships of one-half of the cost (camp fee is $175) to send Farm Bureau members to the Ohio Leadership Camp session for the first three students that contact the office prior to camp. You will be reimbursed after attendance at the camp session. Call 419-747-7488 or email [email protected] to register your youth for the camp sponsorship.
Camp registration is done online, generally by the FFA advisor. Farm Bureau youth not enrolled in FFA can register by completing both forms from the student page of the Ohio FFA Camp website (click here) and submitting them with payment to Kelsey Turner at Ohio Farm Bureau no later than June 5.
