Open to incoming freshmen through graduating seniors (up to 19 years of age) Camp Canopy is the summer activity all of your friends will be talking about. A weeklong (Sunday-Friday) camp the second week of June held at Ohio FFA Camp Muskingum in Carrollton, it’s the perfect mix of forestry, wildlife and adventure.
2020 Dates: June 7-12 (cancelled)
Camp Canopy combines educational sessions with instructors from Ohio’s top natural resource organizations (like the Ohio Department of Natural Resources) and industry experts from the state’s top educational institutions with the adventure of the great outdoors. Plus, the traditional summer camp activities (campfire, anyone?) we all know and love.
Camp Canopy may be cancelled for 2020, but we’ve lined up a week’s worth of virtual learning in its place! Check out our Facebook page (@CampCanopy) every day from June 7 – 12, 2020 for daily videos! Can’t wait to see what we have planned? Check out the schedule here.

Be ready to challenge yourself, learn, try new things, explore nature, make lots of friends, laugh, and most importantly, experience adventure! In order to make our week at Camp Canopy the best it can possibly be, keep the following in mind:
- Respect for each other and their belongings and the facility is essential for a fun, smooth and successful experience.
- Each camper will be a part of a leaf group. Each leaf group will attend classes, meals and specific activities together. Other times are allocated for large group activities and recreation breaks.
- You will be expected to follow the rules and guidelines established by the Ohio Forestry Association, FFA Camp Muskingum and your leaf group counselor. If your conduct or influence is not appropriate or in the best interest of the entire group, you will be dismissed from the program without a refund. Please be ready to have an open mind and have fun together!
