Kylee Glover, Miranda Cansler and Kendra Graham represented the Fairview FFA Chapter at the Farmland Youth Leadership Conference, at Liberty, MO.
Members learned very valuable skills that can be used in the future and applied to everyday life.
Members had the opportunity to attend several different sessions on personal development, communication, professional development and teamwork. The campers also were split into small groups to talk on a more personal level and discuss what they had experienced throughout the day.
The campers also had the opportunity to try out for several different parts and positions during the camp. Cansler was a board of director during one session and was a delegate speaker during the annual banquet. Glover and Graham also tried out for other parts throughout the camp.
During the weeklong camp, campers took part in a rope course, designed to teach members about teamwork and fully relying on someone else. It teaches people to trust one another and helps develop bonding skills with other people.
The campers came home with a lot of knowledge of cooperatives and how agriculture ties in with today's society. They will be able to teach Fairview FFA Chapter members what they learned and how the chapter, as a group, can grow and become a better chapter.
