Camp Tecumseh event an opportunity for personal, team development
KOKOMO, Ind. — Members of the Leadership Kokomo Class of 2017 had two days of learning and laughing recently at a leadership retreat at Camp Tecumseh near Lafayette.
For the class members, the retreat was an opportunity to learn more about themselves, their classmates, and a variety of lessons in leadership with a lot of fun along the way, said Carrie Giannakos, director of the Leadership Kokomo program. The retreat was led by Neal Morehead, director of the YMCA Camp Tecumseh Leadership Center, and included a zip-lining adventure.
The participants, representing industry, higher education, city government, health care, finance and the non-profit sector, make up the 35th edition of the annual leadership development program.
