The Lakewood branch of the Ocean County Library hosted 50 people for its 7-hour Teen Success Camp Saturday, May 7th.
The Teen Success Camp prepared teens for future success and greatness. The rule of conduct for tomorrow’s success is to prepare for it today. The Teen Success Camp helped teens acquire the knowledge necessary to achieve their dreams. Teens learned the rules for success; gained greater self-esteem; became more self-confident; learned to occupy their dreams; and took part in a book-writing project that will be published. Our special guests were Will Horton and Dr. Loretta Long. Will Horton is the author and editor of more than 20 books on success and greatness. Dr. Loretta Long is a dynamic actress, role model, mentor to children and adolescents from elementary school to college, and is best known for her role she has created as “Susan” on Sesame Street.
