Delegates chose from sixteen different workshops designed to develop their individual, group, and camp counseling leadership skills. Workshops for the weekend included: 7 Attributes of a Great 4-H Teen; Camp Works!; Leadership Survival Skills – A Wild Approach; “I Carried a Watermelon” – Communicating Your 4-H Message; Social Media Savvy; Dining Etiquette; Global Perspectives; Piloting Your Time; Public Speaking Just Got Real; Power, Privilege and Identity; Being Your Best Self; Leading and Climate Change; Health Rocks; Your Vision, Your Voice; and Customers For Life.

It was a fun filled weekend of learning, laughing, friends, and fellowship! The teens were challenged to use their unique strengths and be the participants who will make a difference in their clubs, communities, country, and world. They will be developing promotional 4-H radio spots, serving as leaders for local 4-H camps, and supporting other 4-H events as part of their training experiences.
