Registration Information / Letter

TO:  ALL WYOMING FFA MEMBERS AND ADVISORS

FROM: Lindsey Freeman, Wyoming FFA Leadership Camp Director (307) 286-1049, director@ffacamp.org

RE: 44th ANNUAL WYOMING FFA LEADERSHIP CAMP

WHEN:

  • 1st Session JUNE 15-19, 2021 (Tuesday – Saturday)
  • 2nd Session JUNE 22-26, 2021 (Tuesday – Saturday)

WHERE:

Fremont County Youth Camp (near Lander, WY)

For those that have not been to the Youth Camp, please be aware that the road is very narrow and winding but paved, so chapters should be okay bringing buses into the camp.  Please visit our web site (www.ffacamp.org) for road condition updates before leaving.

To get to the camp, simply go into Lander, from Main Street, take Hwy 131 South past Sinks Canyon and up the mountain toward Worthen Meadows Reservoir.  Watch for the Fremont County Youth Camp signs. It should now take about 30 minutes from Lander.

For those who have not seen the location, it is located in the beautiful mountains southwest of Lander at the Fremont County Youth Camp.  We always order decent weather, but it is in the mountains and evenings get very cool.  We’ve even had snow in past years, so bring appropriate clothing.

WHO:

Any FFA Member in good standing who will be completing 8-12th grade this year, or freshmen and older next school year.

SPECIAL GUESTS: State FFA Officers,

HOW MUCH:

Registration Fees & Deadlines:

REGISTRATION INFORMATION:

There are two ways to register, by individual (camper submits payment) or chapter (chapter submits payment). Students paying should use the online “Individual Camper Registration Form”. Students who are paying are required to pay the full amount at the time of registration. They are not considered registered until full payment is received!  If payment will be submitted by school or chapter Advisors should fill out the “Advisor Camper Registration Form” online or use the included registration form.  The voucher should be completed for the full amount. All registration information, medical forms, and signed Liability Release forms can be emailed or mailed to:

  •  Wyoming FFA Leadership Camp
  • 9500 Bishop Rd
  • Casper, WY  82604

Registration and scholarship questions should be directed to:

Burt Andreen – 307-258-2484, registration@ffacamp.org

The Registration fee is non-refundable, but may be transferred to another member if the original registrant is unable to attend camp.  All campers must bring a completed medical form and liability waiver to camp if not mailed or emailed.  Medical forms/liability waivers must be signed by a parent/guardian.

Early Registration Discounts: We will be providing discounts based on early registration.  Receiving camp registrations by May (rather than early June) is very helpful to our preparations for camp.  We encourage chapters to get their registrations submitted as early as possible.  All registrations postmarked by May 10th will qualify for the early registration discount.  We will use the postmark date or online registration form submittal as the official “registration date”.

GENERAL CAMP INFORMATION:

Multimedia Recording and Usage Policy

Western Institute of Leadership for Life, Inc. (DBA Wyoming FFA Leadership Camp) staff and its designees may capture photos, video and other recordings of participants before, during and after events at the Wyoming FFA Leadership Camp. Please be aware that all recorded media may be used by the Wyoming FFA Leadership Camp or with Western Institute of Leadership for Life, Inc.’s consent in future print materials, online materials including the official camp website (http://www.ffacamp.org) and its official social media accounts, signage, slideshows, podcasts, videos and other uses in physical and digital forms. Attendance of Wyoming FFA Leadership Camp implies your consent to be photographed, videotaped and otherwise recorded for these purposes.  No individual or group may sell or distribute any Multimedia from Wyoming FFA Leadership Camp without its consent.

Check-In/Registration on the first day of camp runs from 12:00 P.M. – 1:30 P.M.

We will register chapters starting at noon as they arrive, so the earlier the chapter gets there, the sooner they will be registered, but we will not register chapters before noon.  Please note: No lunch is provided to campers on registration day.  Have members bring a sack lunch or plan on eating before coming to registration.

Release at the end of each session: On the last day of each session, camp will be released at 9:00 in the morning.  No one will be released until the cabins are cleaned and inspected.  Whenever possible we encourage participants to wait until the day camp starts to arrive as opposed to traveling up with a state officer or counselor.  If you will be in a hurry to get out when camp is released, please instruct students to complete cleanup early.  Because of the additional day between camps, it will NOT be possible for chapters to drop members off for second session when they are picking up members from the first session.

We will be looking forward to seeing many of you there.

Sincerely, Lindsey Freeman,

Director, Wyoming FFA Leadership Camp
