Hello, Band Boosters!
The Prescott Area Youth Leadership (PAYL) Academy is now accepting applications for its 2015 leadership skills building weekend retreat at Chapel Rock Camp in Prescott on Feb. 13-15, 2015.
Helping motivated high school students build a foundation for developing effective leadership skills in a relaxed atmosphere.
Informative and action packed. Local leaders teach servant leadership basics like self-understanding, character building, active listening, team building, conflict resolution, and public speaking. Plus there's a ton of outdoor fun: zip lines, climbing walls, marshmallows around the campfire and more.
There is no cost to participate! All meals are included.
The application is online at:
I hope that we have some PHS music and guard students apply!
