Future Builders of America hosted its first Leadership Camp in 2004 at the FFA facility in Haines City, Florida. Just seven students attended the first event but it was such a success that five of the original seven students returned the following year, and they brought friends. Through the dedication and hard work of the camp committee, countless volunteers, donors and FHBA’s own inspirational staff, the Leadership Camp has grown since its inception in both quantity of students and quality of programs.  In 2016, the event was renamed to the "Leadership Summit".

Save the dates - April 15-18, 2021 for the Annual Leadership Summit

Due to the impact of COVID19 , the FBA Annual Leadership Summit at the FFA Training Center in Haines City, FL has been rescheduled for April 15-18, 2021.   

If you are interested in volunteering or sponsoring the Summit, please contact FBA Executive Director Cindy Hall at 772-370-4713 or ExecDirector@FutureBuildersofAmerica.org.
