Mark your calendars and spread the word for the First 4-H Teen Leadership Retreat held at the Northern VA 4-H Educational Center in Front Royal Friday, November 8th – Sunday, November 10th.  This year’s theme, Igniting Your Fire, will focus on leadership basics, characteristics of effective leaders, and motivating yourself and others.

 The activities begin at 6:30 pm on Friday, November 8th with a motivational assembly and guest speaker, campfire, and organized meet-and-greet. Saturday’s program involves workshops, teambuilding sessions, a service project, and the formation of a teen leadership committee for those interested, followed by an evening dance, and campfire. The weekend retreat concludes after breakfast with a final ceremony and guest speaker.

 The Leadership Retreat fee of $95.00 includes meals, snacks, lodging, workshops, and a retreat T-shirt. Additionally, we are asking for a donation of 2 (or more!) canned food items from each retreat participant that will be donated to the Warren County Food Bank. The Retreat is open to non-4-H members.
