Last Sunday, April 26th, 2015, the Ambassadors participated in their annual Spring Retreat event which was hosted at Ligonier Camp & Conference Center in Ligonier, PA. As tradition holds, a theme was selected for the retreat, and this year happened to boast a Harry Potter theme as determined by the Development Committee. All of the Ambassadors were split up into their respective Hogwarts Houses, and one Ligonier Camp counselor was assigned to each group to facilitate team-building activities and exercises. The day was filled with a wide assortment of fun activities including low-ropes courses, initiatives, group games and challenges, and laser tag. All of the Ambassadors—old and new alike—had the opportunity to get to know each other better and work/communicate with each other more effectively. It was a fantastic learning opportunity, and our facilitators did an excellent job of providing interesting and enjoyable activities that incorporated useful information for student leaders including topics such as trust, the importance of teamwork, communication, etc.
We would like to send out a special thank you to the Vice President of Development Katie Fox and the entire Development Committee for their hard work and dedication in preparing this very successful event. Also, we acknowledge the Ligonier Camp staff for making this event possible and an all-around enjoyable experience. This event marks the beginning of the new Ambassador family’s journey in the coming year, and we look forward to the good work that is to come from them.
