The theme for Summer Leadership Camp 2006 was "Where do we go from here?" The focus of the week was allowing each student the opportunity to be part of a team, developing teambuilding and leadership skills while having fun. Campers took part in a variety of activities including volleyball, softball, canoe races, a swim meet, a fishing tournament, skeet and archery shooting, talent show, teambuilding course, and much more.
As special events, Dr. Al Snyder brought an entertaining hypnotist performance. On the last night of camp, students participated in a muddy obstacle course. The students from Thomson attending camp included:
Kenneth Ollison, Chris Turner, Bob Bentley, Thomas Williams, Felicia Jones, Mikeda Tate, Elizabeth Smith, Shannon Fountain and Carliesha Bell.
"Summer Leadership camp is about teaching students various tools of success while they have the time of their life. The teachers and staff invest so much time to make sure these youth have an experience that will never forget," said Todd Teasley, camp director.
The Georgia FFA/FCCLA center is located near Covington, on the banks of the Lake Jackson. It covers more than 500 acres and serves over 20,000 people annually.
