The Logan County FFA Chapter attended the Kentucky FFA Leadership Training Camp in Hardinsburg Kentucky, June 25-29. The Logan County FFA Chapter was one of 19 different FFA Chapters staying at the camp for the week. The Senior Officer Team from Logan County along with several other members participated in various leadership classes and team building activities. There were various sports a person could pick to play at camp such as; volleyball, basketball, softball, shuffle board, card games, water games, and many more. There was a wide assortment of classes ranging from electrical safety to preparing for college that a camper could participate in.
At night we would have sessions to discuss the day’s events and a nightly guest speaker. Tuesday night’s guest speaker spoke on Kentucky Farm Bureau and the history of the company while Wednesday night’s speaker Dr. Al Snyder, a hypnotist and entertainer, came to camp and performed a show for the campers. Thursday night’s session the FFA quiz bowl took place. A series of questions on FFA history was asked to 10 members from different chapters. Ashley Brinkley represented the Logan County FFA Chapter and won the contest! She will go back the 5th week of FFA Camp at the end of July to compete against other chapters from across Kentucky in hopes of winning it all!
Campers during the week had the opportunity to earn points in various classes and activities to earn the right to receive Outstanding Leadership Awards. Amanda Shoemake, Addie Baldwin, and Austin Smotherman from the LCHS FFA Chapter were all presented Outstanding Leadership Awards at the closing session on Friday morning.
Overall this week at camp was amazing! The Logan County FFA Chapter grew closer together as a family and set high goals for the upcoming year. Special thanks to our Advisors, Brian Estes and Jay Campbell for supporting and bringing us to camp this year!
