Weddington FFA students attend summer camps

Weddington FFA students take a moment for a quick photo while they attend summer camp at White Lake.

Over the summer, eight Weddington High School Future Farmers of America (FFA) students went to Summer Camp at White Lake for a summer-filled fun experience.

“They had a great time,” said Christina Sanders, Agriculture Education Teacher and FFA Advisor. “The camp is located on a beautiful lake in in Bladen County, North Carolina.”

While at summer camp, students participated in leadership activities, attended dances, met new people and played in tournaments such as water ball, basketball, softball, volleyball, just to name a few.

Since 1928, more than 400,000 FFA members have visited White Lake.

As the oldest FFA camp in the United States, the North Carolina FFA Center offers scenic views and historic cabins.
