Girl's camp 2012
I just got back from our week long young women's camp -whew!
We had a GREAT time!
we did some swimming and canoeing...
some long beautiful hikes...
enjoyed the mountain air and scenery...
did some serious zip-lining!....
enjoyed our time together as sisters! -including some awesome hair-styling ;)
We had some really awesome moments with the girls
in different -more spiritual- activities and lessons.
We had activities to teach the girls about -and help provide opportunities to develop- leadership qualities.
We did a "commitment walk" where every girl had the opportunity to make a commitment to Christ that she would live by the standard/value being taught -it was very touching.
There was a fantastic story shared about staying on a path of righteousness and not falling to the world's view of who we are/should be.
This pic is of a balloon launch we had, where the girls each took a balloon resembling a struggle they were dealing with and decided to let it go into the Lord's hands.
I love the Young Women's program we have in our church. It is truly an inspired program!
I especially love to see the experiences the girls -and leaders- have at camp!
You can tell they feel the Spirit and are strengthened and feel united throughout the entire week!!
-and prayerfully we as leaders hope they bring those lessons home and apply them to daily life.
We have amazing youth!!!
