“This camp has helped me learn not only about cooperatives in Georgia, but also about myself and how to be a leader.” ~ 2018 camper

Date: The 2018 Conference was held July 16-20.
The 2019 camp dates have not yet been determined.

Location: Georgia FFA/FCCLA Center, Covington, GA


The purpose of the 5-day conference is to build and enhance teen leadership skills and for participants to learn the role cooperatives play in the communities they serve. The leadership event is also designed to promote teamwork through a series of exercises, training and presentations.

Participants are sponsored by Georgia Co-op Council member cooperatives, who determine participants and cover the cost of the week. Check our list of members and contact one of your local cooperatives to get more information on how to apply.
