 What a student may expect and should know:

  • Registration (closed for 2020) – members will sign up for a dorm room at registration and be assigned roommates.  Keys will be handed out at registration and required to be turned back in on Thursday during dorm room check.  There is a $50 fee for a lost key, payable to Clarendon College.  There is a cost for camp.  Talk with your advisor.  
  • Clothing you should bring to wear:  “Dress for Camp.”  This is a leadership conference, not a fashion show.
  • Leadership classes and personal skill information will be taught during the day - name badges and wristbands must be worn and kept with you the entire day.  You are divided into different color groups and should stay with your group during the daytime workshops & sessions.  Tuesday Large Group Rotations, Wednesday Workshop Descriptions - will be updated for 2020 soon.
  • Please be mindful of our facilities.  We are guests on this campus. 
  • Members will write notes to each other at camp called “Happy Grams”, so bring paper or stationary along with an appropriate picture printed out (no larger than 4"X 6") to place on your folders.  Read more here.   ***PLEASE NOTE*** HG's are meant to be positive only.  Inappropriate references or other items WILL cause HG's to be removed from current or future camps.  
  • Agtastic!! will be conducted so bring athletic clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty.  Shoes are a good idea, although they will get wet and dirty, so be prepared. No swim suits, please.  
  • Banquet – official FFA dress is required.  Chapter group pictures will be made, awards will be given, conference special guests will be recognized and a motivational guest speaker will all be part of the program.  A group of your own FFA advisors provide the delicious meal of prime rib and all the fixins'.
  • Pictures taken at conference will be available for you to download free of charge from the Area I website.  For students interested in serving on the Publicity Committee, fill out the form before April 9 , 2020. See the committee members here.
  • A concession trailer will be available all during conference to provide snacks and water at no additional charge for you.  Pizza and snow cones will also be available for purchase (bring your cash or plastic) both nights of the dance.  Any profit from this will be placed in the "Leadership Scholarship Fund."
  • Bring your own bed and bath linens and all other personal items.  You are staying in a dorm with mattresses provided, but nothing else.  Be prepared with a sleeping bag, pillow, sheets, blankets, bath towel, washcloth, shampoo, soap, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrush, and other personal hygiene items.  A shower curtain with ring attachments is a good idea in some dorms, but in case you forget, there will be some for sale at registration.   Extra towels are also available for purchase.
  • An important event for ALC every year is our Community Service Project. updated for 2020 soon.  Be sure to see what items to bring or things you should know about ahead of time here. 
  • Leadership Conference is designed to assist your local FFA chapter with needed information and skills for its members for the upcoming year.  Workshops and session attendance are not optional and participation by all members is crucial to have a successful event.   Presenters and guests have worked hard to come up with useful and educational topics to share with you.  Showing respect by listening and not being on your phone is the best way to get the most out of conference.
  • Please remember that professionalism during all functions is part of the success of individual FFA members and chapters.  We maintain a no late arrival, no early departure policy that must be enforced by local FFA Advisors.  Every minute of every day you are in Clarendon, the area officer team, their advisors, workshop providers, sponsors, campus staff, leadership development coordinators and the executive committee have something planned for you to be doing.  You will go home tired because we believe in keeping you busy, but still learning something and having fun:)
