Some 40 members of the Polk County High School FFA Chapter attended FFA Camp at White Lake, N.C. in mid-June.
The camping program at the week-long event consisted of character building, leadership and recreational activities. Each day started with students taking part in devotional, flag-raising ceremonies and callisthenics. Next, students attended leadership sessions where they enhanced their leadership skills.
The remainder of the day the students participated in competitive events including water sports (swimming, canoeing, water ball), basketball, volleyball, softball, horseshoes, shuffle board, checkers and table tennis. All activities were based on a point system and the team with the most points at the end of the week was declared the winner.
The Polk County High chapter had four teams competing: Black, Blue, Silver and White. The teams placed as follows: Blue 3rd, Black 5th, Silver 6th and White 7th.
