The week of June 4 to 8, 18 members of the Miami East FFA Chapter attended FFA Camp at Ohio FFA Camp Muskingum. Camp Muskingum is located on Leesville Lake in Carroll County, just south of Carrollton, Ohio.

During the week members competed in many competitions, participated in workshops and team building activities, and met FFA members from across the state.  The FFA members took part in leadership training sessions, which were conducted by the current Ohio FFA State Officers. The campers also learned about conservation through a recycling program. Members listened to a motivational speaker, Karen Vadino.

While at camp, members donated money towards the “Pie-in-the-Eye” campaign.  All proceeds from the activity will go to Children’s Hospital.  Miami East FFA purchased a chapter visit by the newly elected state FFA president, Shelby Faulkner.
Heather Skaggs was an attendee that has attended FFA Camp for four years.
