The pandemic couldn’t stop us from having a great 2020 JWLA Leadership Camp on August 8 and August 9. We held camp at the Evanston Lighthouse Beach Shelter. We had two different groups of Wynners each day; close to 70 Wynners in all. The Wynners safely participated in team building activities and had discussions about being a leader and the needs of our community. They also had fun doing yoga, playing games and doing tie dye. It was great way to start off the 2020-21 program year!
