For the past week, 35 JAG Works Tolleson members from middle school to recent high school graduates attended a summer camp at Chauncey Ranch in Mayer to learn more about leadership.
Camp activities such as the water balloon fights, kayaking, and swimming kept the group cool while parts of the state faced an intense heat wave. Participants also learned archery, and bonded with each other through team-building exercises, board games, and a movie night.
Several of the participants hadn’t met each other before, and while it was nerve-racking at first, they learned the value of coming together to overcome challenges.
“My favorite part of camp was getting to meet all of the other JAG members and learn more about them,” said Envee Medina, one of the JAG Works Tolleson members.
JAG Summer Camps are an opportunity for our current JAG students and graduates to continue working on their personal goals for public speaking, leadership, and working in teams.
We have three other camps in store for participants this summer, and we have spots open for our second Leadership 101 Camp at West-MEC, a Career Exploration Camp, and College Tour Day Camp. SIGN UP HERE
