Shelton Camp participantsThis week, through the Lura S. Tally Center for Leadership Development, 映客直播 hosted students for a one-week summer residential experience taking place on MU鈥檚 expansive 600-plus acre campus.

The General Shelton Leadership Camp helped campers improve their knowledge and skills of what it takes to become a strong leader through General H. Hugh Shelton鈥檚 cornerstones of values-based leadership: honesty, integrity, compassion, diversity, and social responsibility.

鈥淚t was exciting to welcome these exceptional high school students to the General Shelton Leadership Camp,鈥 said Dr. Mark Regensburger, director of the Lura S. Tally Center for Leadership Development and assistant professor of Management at MU. 鈥淔or me, as a leadership scholar and educator, the opportunity to work directly with young leaders is a rewarding privilege. We already look forward to accepting applicants for next year鈥檚 camp in the fall.鈥

All week long, campers participated in a variety of fun activities such as low and high ropes courses, scavenger hunt, Jeopardy, bingo, dancing, dyeing t-shirts, and a talent show. But the camp also provides an enriching experience through a core curriculum that focuses on leadership roles and accountability, team building, leadership styles and situations, social responsibility, integrity as a leader, public speaking, changing behaviors, and goal setting.

The best part of camp is the growth the students experience through both lessons that are both active and interactive.

Shelton Camp participants鈥淪omething I鈥檝e really resonated with are the lessons about your personal values,鈥 said Laurel Hustwit, a local 10th聽grade student who attended the camp. 鈥淚t鈥檚 something I鈥檝e never really thought too hard about, but I鈥檝e learned more about myself, the people around me, and how to work with people that come from different backgrounds and perspectives that have different values.鈥

For upcoming 10th聽grade camper Marcus Warees, this was his first time for both attending the General Shelton Leadership Camp and visiting 映客直播鈥檚 campus.

鈥淚t鈥檚 been really nice,鈥 said Warees, who is from the Fayetteville area. 鈥淚鈥檝e learned to speak up and lead people鈥 [映客直播] is definitely one of the schools I鈥檓 considering now.鈥
