Re: The Most Excellent FFA Camp in the Northeast!
The Oswegatchie FFA Summer Camp has been putting together a Tool Box that teachers can use to get more students to Oswegatchie this summer. Much of our success depends on the excitement of teachers and the enrollment of campers. We are here to support you and everything you do. The NY FFA not only has a legacy of great students, but we also have a great place in the Adirondacks!
… We are the only FFA Camp in New York and New England!
… We are excellent for younger students and its a great way to get them excited about the FFA.
… Oswegatchie is a great introduction to your agricultural program and the FFA.
… Non-FFA students from your school can have the FFA price when they go to camp.
… Recruit outside your ag classes.
… Oswegatchie is a great way to get students in your classes. If they want to be in the FFA, they need to be enrolled in your ag classes.
… Oswegatchie is an excellent gateway to the larger FFA leadership spectrum.
… We do a great job of blending leadership training, environmental education, and outdoor recreation.
