Last week I closed up my shop and stopped texting in order to go to the Young Women's (YW) girl's camp. It ran from Monday to Friday. This has been planned all year long. It was a Stake girl's camp. It was the Tulsa Oklahoma East Stake. I was partnered up with the YW's president from our ward. First we were in charge of making sure all of our own girls made it to camp as well as their totes. So I picked up the YW President's trailer and we loaded all the totes onto it. She had to be to camp with the 4th year girls by 9 in the morning. I had to be there with the Young Women Leaders (YCL's) from my ward.
Once at camp we were in charge of half of the third year girls from our stake. There were 10 cabins built back in the 30's. They are pretty plain. There are 3 bunk beds on each side of the cabin so it will fit 12 girls on beds. Lucky us we had 12 girls and then us. So we slept on the floor. We took air mattresses.
This year at camp the theme was "The Gospel is My Anchor" so each cabin had a name and a theme song.
Tuesday the girls got there in the morning and we welcomed them to our cabin and helped them get settled in. Then the busy schedule began. Every day we had a Workshop, a Craft, and Certification. They each lasted an hour. Wednesday morning we went for a hike in the morning while it was still cool outside.
Throughout the week we saw raccoons and armadillos. We played games, walked a lot, and had lots of fun. We learned so much. I missed going to girl's camp. I am so glad that I could go. I would love to go again next year.
I hope that you all had a good week. Thanks for checking back throughout the week. I'll let you know how things go with me getting into the swing of things.
