A leadership camp will return to the William Woods University campus in Fulton on June 12-17.

The Missouri Association of Student Councils hosts a leadership camp annually on the campus of William Woods University. The camp had not been held for the past two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Each year, hundreds of students from across the state descend on the campus to learn about student council, leadership, organization, team building, project planning and community service.

All of those skills will be taken back home to assist the students and their home councils improve their schools and communities.

The 17th annual Children's Carnival will be from 2-4 p.m. June 14.

More than 20 booths will be available for students in preschool through sixth grade.

Face painting, ring toss, milk jug throw, moon bounce and a basketball shoot are some of the activities that will be available.

Drinks, popcorn and cotton candy will also be available at no charge.

The purpose of the annual carnival is to teach students the necessary steps in planning a project and seeing it to completion.

It also allows students to do a community service project for area children.

Missouri Association of Student Councils stresses the importance of teaching service. Their mission is to help student council leaders learn the value of doing good deeds for their schools and communities.
