What is DECA camp?

The Ohio DECA Summer Leadership Retreat, or simply known as DECA Camp, is a four day excursion in which attendees are paired with other DECA members from across the state in a small group led by a Youth Staff member, a recent camp alumni and graduate.

The Summer Leadership Retreat (SLR) is designed to build a camper’s leadership skills through various small group activities, teamwork exercises, co-initiative small ropes course, inspirational speakers, mock competition, informational workshops, and social events. As the first major event of the year, DECA Camp provides the tools and motivation necessary to be a success in DECA throughout the year.

Since 1976, the goal of the SLR has been to provide the opportunity for Ohio DECA members to develop essential skills needed for their future endeavors in Marketing Education and DECA in a fun, relaxed, social environment.

Power Outage

Power Outage imageUPDATE: (8:48am) Camp will go on as expected!  As of this writing, the power has yet to be fixed, but will likely be back on within the hour.  To allow schools that have a longer distance to travel time to arrive, registration has been pushed back an hour to 2-4pm and the opening session to 4pm.  Normal activities will resume from there.

The power in a large area around FFA Camp Muskingum went down Wednesday night.  Because a lot of the water and sewage systems are also tied to the electricity, there would be no chance of running a camp of our size at that facility without power.  As of right now (10pm Thursday) we are going to try to wait until 9:30 Friday morning to see if AEP is able to restore the electricity to camp before giving final word.

Therefore,  all students and advisors please check back to this website at 9:30am for a final announcement on whether or not camp will be cancelled completely.  In the event that camp is not cancelled, we will push back the start time until 4pm, at which time normal activities will resume. Please spread the word to as many people as you can.

Let’s all hope AEP is able to rock out in Carrollton, Ohio and we have a successful camp!  Thanks for your understanding!
