A new Youth Leadership Atmore class has been selected and members began their leadership journey recently with a trip to Camp Beckwith in Baldwin County.

They learned quickly that teamwork makes things go smoother and helps to resolve problems faster on the low ropes challenges.

Many of them also challenged themselves to try the high ropes.  Everyone came away from the retreat with new friendships.
