Send a Kid to Camp!
The Oswegatchie FFA Camp has been a vital part of the New York FFA experience since 1946. Creating an opportunity for FFA members to get away from home, school, and the farm to "recreate" who they are has been an important developmental milestone for countless teens. The chance to socialize with new people has also be powerfully important. Originally, this was to get kids of the farm, but within the 21st century, socializing in person has become increasingly important.
Now a days there seems to be plenty of ways for youth to earn their way to camp. Some schools have grants or fundraisers. Some students have parents with more means. Certain FFA chapters use reward systems to help youth pay their way to camp. However, there are always those FFA members in-between the proverbial "rock and hard place'.
If you are interested in helping a student get to camp, follow this link "Send a Kid to Camp", and read the synopsis. In short, you can earmark a donation for summer camp, where you want it to go, and any other criteria you require. If you want to do a partial sponsorship, the opportunity is there as well.

Nice post because Camp gets kids out in nature. Unplugged from the computer, the videogames, the cell phone, they gain an appreciation for the natural environment and discover the wisdom and fun it has to offer. It was fun . . . really good and I wish my friends could go because you are learning but at the same time you are having fun
