Fishing Pond and Hiking Trails

Through the hard work and efforts of the camp staff, the fishing pond and the hiking trails on the southeast

edge of the property have been renovated.  Upon arrival at camp, the allowable times for visiting this area

will be communicated.  Students must also be accompanied by an adult at all times.  In the case of the pond,

campers must bring their own fishing poles and bait.  It is catch and release only.

HEALTH FORMS

Advisors are required to bring their students’ health forms with them.  Please keep these forms in your

possession at all times. This form is available on the Louisiana FFA website.

Chaperones

Teachers bringing students of the opposite gender must make arrangements among themselves to secure a

chaperone with teachers of the same gender or a chaperone from the school of the same gender. In the past,

several chapters assumed a teacher would chaperone their students and one teacher wound up chaperoning

more than one cabin of students.  This is not acceptable. Agriculture teachers who have agreed to chaperone

for other chapters must keep us informed as to which chapter and number of students you will be chaperoning.

 

Please note the following very important information received from Mr. Chris Hines, Director of the Youth Center:

According to Act 29 of the 1955 Louisiana Legislature, each cottage must have one (1) adult chaperone for every 15 students.  Therefore, there must be a male chaperone or female chaperone for each cottage according to the enrollment figures of male and female registrants.  This will be a strict policy of the Center that males will be separated from females and chaperoned according to the State Statutes.  Chaperones should be 21 years or older. 

The Center cannot allow anyone who has not reached his/her tenth birthday by May 15, 2014, to attend this conference  without special authorization in writing by the Office of School and Community Support (OSCS).  All commuters or those attending for a shorter period than the full conference will be assessed the same price.

REFUNDS

In accordance with action taken by the State FFA Executive Committee in April 2001, refunds MUST be

requested in writing postmarked no later than October 1. Every effort will be made to give refunds by the

last day of the camp you attend.  ABSOLUTELY NO REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN AFTER THE OCTOBER
