Military Children Winter Survival Camp



During the week of February 19 -24th, New York’s FFA Camp Oswegatchie will host a week long outdoor sports & winter survival camp. While it is titled a Winter Survival Camp, we will be using our modern / winterized lodge for meals and lodging. Everything else is outside on our 1,200 acres of wilderness land in the Adirondacks. Besides basic physical abilities, it requires no special skill sets, but it does require winter clothes.

This camp is open to any youth ages 14 – 18, as long as they are the child of an active duty, reservist, or retired military personnel.

This is a grant program being implemented through the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Jefferson County and is highly grant funded. The cost per student is only $40, but the value of the week is $500, plus there is a $325 travel stipend. It’s an incredible value and we would enjoy filling it with FFA & 4-H members from across the country.
 
To learn more, you can refer to the flyer attached, the link below, or contact Oswegatchie at (315) 346-1222 / info@oswegatchie.org . The CCE of Jefferson County can also be contacted for more information.
