Hammer Class Returns From their Wyoming Adventure
Jun 25, 2012

On June 10th, 38 C5 Hammers (participants beginning their 3rd year) and 8 staff headed out to begin the Leadership Experience of a lifetime, flying from Dallas, TX to Salt Lake City Utah, visiting and staying on a college campus outside of Salt Lake, touring Yellowstone Park and finally settling in to the Big Horn Mountains in Wyoming for a 7 day backpacking and leadership learning experience.  The Texas teens were the first group to participate in the Rexam Leadership Challenge for the 2012 program year.  Unlike previous years, they were fortunate to find much of the snow had melted so both trails and rivers were passable.   Stephanie Taylor, Director in charge of the Texas teens,  reported that the group had both a great experience and showed off their leadership talents.  The group returned on June 23rd and stayed at University of Texas at Arlington while preparing video documentaries of their growth as leaders over the first two years in the C5 program before heading home on June 25th.
