Kelsey Oldenburg of the Newark FFA Chapter recently attended the 2009 Illinois FFA Leadership Camp, held at Allerton Park near Monticello, IL from July 29th 0August 1. Kelsey was among the over 300 campers from across the state that gathered to develop leadership skills and learn more about the FFA. Campers participated in a challenge course to develop teamwork, Ag Olympics, FFA power sessions, dance and a large water balloon fight. They also listened to presentations from the Illinois FFA Alumni, Illinois Foundation FFA, Hypnotist Dr. Morton Ford, and guest Speaker Harlan “Butch” Cotter.
