Members Attend Greenhand Camp

On 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.
