The leadership retreat is a weekend trip that students can go on to learn how to become better leaders. There will be large and small group sessions, games, and activities for the students to participate in. There will also be a guest speaker, Jason Jedamski, who previously served as the Director of Student Activities at BAHS. 

The retreat costs $95 and includes meals, housing, transportation and much more. This event will be located at Camp Dry Gulch on Sept. 22-23.

Christian Welborn, Director of Student Activities, plans and attends this event to connect with students and watch them grow as peoples and leaders. 

“Students who have attended the leadership retreat in the past say it was one of the best experiences of their high school career,” Welborn said. “It is a great way for students to learn more about each other and how they can contribute to their school.”

Senior and committee head Macey Morgan is attending the leadership retreat for the third time this year. She describes this event as an emotional roller coaster and recommends everyone invest themselves fully in this event to get the most out of it.

“My favorite thing about the leadership retreat is meeting new people and creating connections with others,” Morgan said. “I’m also really excited about hearing Mr. Jedamski speak.”

This will also be senior Ethan Haldeman’s third year attending the retreat. He compares this event to a very impactful church camp that makes you want to grow more and more with other people.

“The leadership retreat is such an impacting event,” Haldeman said. “The speakers there are so fantastic. So many new people go to this event that I’m not close to, and when I’m there I get to meet some of them.”

Students can attend the leadership retreat by returning an application to the student union by Sept. 14.
