The community service projects were a large part of the camp, teaching the campers about teamwork, selflessness, and leadership.
Throughout the weeklong camp, students listened to several guest speakers and participated in leadership training, team building exercises, and competitions.
Ohio Hi-Point students that attended the Leadership Camp were Dixon Shapiro (Marysville), Philip White (Mechanicsburg), Kayla Snyder (Marysville), Kristi Black (Marysville) and Ellie Skinner (Marysville). All students received the Statesman’s Award and Champions Club.
Ellie Skinner, who was elected as Honorary Camp Secretary, received first place in the Texas-Shootout competition, Volleyball competition, and the Opening and Closing competition.
