Teens can learn leadership skills at camp

As many are searching for ways to safely fill summer calendars, students in grades 9-12 grade may want to consider FLEX Jr. Academy.

From July 27-31, this leadership camp will help students learn skills needed to propel them toward a successful future. From potential work situations to personal and professional growth, different areas of leadership will be taught.

Participants can expect to gain from the camp an understanding of their unique personality preferences, what motivates them, and how to leverage skills to make an impact today that will pay off in their future.  The camp is geared towards students who are looking toward college, professional careers and future next steps – the leadership skills taught during the camp will be lifelong, vital components for that will assist in achieving goals, but also serve as an opportunity to find training and build local connections.

“I believe when a teenager sees themselves as a capable and talented person, their confidence improves and with that grows a desire to succeed. This camp won’t make them successful overnight, but it will give them a head start for a brighter future,” said Chuck Taylor, instructor.

“This camp will be an opportunity for students to flex their muscles, exercise ways of thought that may need fine-tuning and take one step forward to leading our community.”

FLEX Jr. Academy will be held at the new park from 9 a.m.-noon July 27-31 and registration is required. Only 20 spots are available and social distancing guidelines will be followed. The deadline to register is July 17. Visit the Davie County homepage at www.daviecountync.gov,  and click on recreation and parks to find registration information.
