Ligon Outdoor Center Updates
There is a saying that flight attendants say, "Should the cabin lose pressure, oxygen masks will drop from the overhead area. Please place the mask over your own mouth and nose before assisting others." This pandemic has made it hard to breathe for everyone. Before we can help others and before we can be leaders, we must first take care of ourselves.
The GISD is excited to announce that this summer, Ligon Outdoor Center in partnership with Base Camp Challenge Center, will offer a three-day leadership camp series for students entering grades 9 through 12.
Students will be able to attend all three days or choose the topics that interest them the most!
All sessions will be held at the Ligon Outdoor Center from 1:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
Day 1 - Saturday, July 24, 2021 - Finding Your Light!
Day 2 - Saturday, July 31, 2021 - Finding Your Way!
