Attend Greenhand Camp
October 1-3 nine members of the Black River FFA Chapter attended Greenhand Camp
at Ohio FFA Camp Muskingum in Carroll County. Greenhand Camp provides
first-year members an introduction to the FFA, and allows them to work closely
with their home chapter and to focus on goal setting for the coming year.
During their stay at camp, members participated in
numerous leadership activities such as a FFA quiz challenge, Adventure Valley,
and Leadership Field Games. Adventure Valley is a combination of
activities/challenges that members must work together as a team to accomplish
in order to move onto the next obstacle. In addition, they also participated in
a number of goal-oriented workshops presented by the Ohio FFA State Officer
Team. Students were encouraged to set goals that will help guide them as they
begin their FFA careers. They were paired up with the Bellevue FFA Chapter;
allowing our chapter members to meet new friends and work together during the
different leadership workshops and activities.
During free time FFA members had the opportunity to
explore a variety of activities such as kayaking and canoeing, fishing, rifles
and archery, tennis, basketball, and the favorite of the group; tetherball.
The following FFA members attended: Mya Kunsman, Shay
Ladina, Trent Youngberg, Chloee Howard, Madison Bias, Joe Warner, Sharla
Murray, Hope Diaz and Molly Cordonnier.
