Area resident attends camp
Brian Snodgrass, son of David and Cynthia Snodgrass of Leavenworth, attended the Missouri Military Academy's Summer Leadership Camp, conducted July 9-22.
Snodgrass was one of 101 young men to participate in the annual camp. The two-week-long event, which drew campers from 19 states and Mexico and England, emphasized developing self- assurance, personal responsibility and the value of teamwork in accomplishing shared goals.
Led by Missouri Military Academy staff members with military school and armed forces backgrounds, the camp welcomes young men ages 12-16 to get a sample of what life is like at a military school. The school also offers a one-week Confidence Camp for campers ages 8-11.
