Members of the Polk County High School FFA Chapter delivered their usual strong showing at the North Carolina FFA Camp Program held in mid-June at White Lake.
The chapter had three teams competing: Blue, Silver and White. Teams finished as follows: Blue, first; Silver, second; White, fifth.
The camping program consisted of character building, leadership and recreational activities. Each day started with students taking part in devotional, flag-raising ceremonies and calisthenics. Next, students attended leadership sessions where they enhanced their interpersonal skills.
For 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.
