GIRLS CAMP!

Last week I went to girls camp and I had a blast! WE camped in levels this year. For those who do not know what that means let me explain. In our church we have wards where we meet for church on sunday. There are 7 or 8 wards in a Stake. Normally you meet with your stake to go to girls camp. When I was growing up we camped in wards so it was all the girls in our ward of all ages. When you camp in levels you are put with girls your own age but they are all in different wards. SO then the girls have an opportunity to meet and make new friends. Anyway I was over level 2's which are mostly 13 year old girls. Our level color was orange. Level 1 had red, level 3 had yellow, level 4 had green, and the YCL's (youth camp leaders) had purple. So the girls in the orange bandana's were in my level! We tie dyed, learned how to make bracelets, went hiking, got soaked in the rain, ate a lot of awesome food. I of course brought my volleyball net and we played a lot of volleyball. I met a lot of girls playing volleyball with them.

Our level had 24 girls and 4 leaders. The rest of the levels had between 12 and 14. My cousin Whitney brought Kayla up to visit 1 day so she is in one of the pictures taken. Last time we left her with grandma over night for a couple of days, she did not do so great. SHe really missed her mommy. She really loves her grandma but still is young enough that she needs me. So I planned to have her come half way. Alex would never leave if I were to let him come up so he stayed home with grandma!

I met some wonderful girls, and I think I camped with THE best leaders that went. I had a grand ole time. If you want to see pictures here is the blog to our camping trip!

You know what they need at the Girls Camp? A sports director to do mini tourneys and morning work outs with the girls. That person should be you Kristina. That will give the girls some daily excercise time and teach them benefits of healthy living. I could definitely use a reminder, lol. That would be a big hit for everyone who doesn't know excercise can be fun. You would be the BESTEST role model and leader for that!
