Girls Camp

So Fun!

The girls in my cabin.


Our cabin


It felt so good to sleep in my own bed last night! I have been at Girls Camp since Tuesday morning. We rolled back into town yesterday around noon. I have to admit, I was one happy person! Girls camp was wonderful! Our camp was in Strawberry Arizona. It is only about an hour, and a half from my house. The theme this year was, Once Upon a Princess! This was such a fitting theme for these girls. Camp is such a great thing for these girls. I am not sure of the total amount of girls that attended this year. I am sure there were a few hundred. They get spiritually fed, have fun, dance, laugh, run, eat. sleep...a little, hike, sing, perform skits, enjoy the outdoors, crafts, etc. The main purpose though is to let them know that they are loved. That they are wonderful, and our Heavenly Father does think they are all princesses. It is a wonderful things to see, and be involved in. I feel so blessed that Sarah is able to attend something so positive! It was fun to be at camp with her! Here are some pictures of our adventure! :)

Great photos! You look too good to have been at camp all week! Hope that was your first day photo! HA! I am a cabin Mom for the YCL's - any suggestions on a FHE that I have to do for all the YCL's? Did you do an activity? Lesson? Games? Treats? - this is my first year since "I" was a young girl!

Michelle, it looks like so much fun. What a great experience to be with your daughter. I love the theme too. They always need to be reminded of their worth.

You have such a postitive outlook on life, and it radiates in your pictures. Thanks so much for sharing this time and I know how special those times our in our memory boxes. Welcome Home to our beds though.
