CARROLL COUNTY — Five Delphos FFA members recently embarked on a journey to FFA Camp Muskingum. Their trip would take them to Carroll County, 4 1/2 hours from Delphos, to the home of FFA Camp.
The week-long session members attended was packed full of leadership, team-building, communication and recreational activities. The members had the opportunity to meet and visit with this year’s State FFA Officer Team, relax and enjoy different aspects of camp and most importantly, create friendships with close to 300 other FFA members from across the state.
During the week, Delphos FFA members participated in four team-building and problem-solving based workshops presented by the state FFA officers. They participated in various contests and tournaments to earn points for their camp chapters.
They took advantage of the opportunity to go swimming, kayaking, canoeing and motor-boating on Leesville Lake.
The experience of being surrounded by new people allowed the members to share activities and experiences that they have gained with the Delphos FFA and learn about other activities that they could implement when they arrived home.
FFA Camp has been established since 1942 and during the five weeks the camp is open to FFA members, over 1,000 of them will attend. The life skills gained at camp come in a different form than those that are usually presented in the classroom because of the relaxed camp environment. The experience has allowed Delphos FFA members to experience personal growth and gain skills that are necessary for a successful future.
