CAMP KICKOFF!!! {Girls Camp}

 Girls Camp is in a little over a week, and I can't wait!We had our camp kickoff a few weeks ago, and I thought I would share a few of the photos with you! We had all the wards make a flag that will be at their ward's camp site, and bring it to the kickoff. These are the flags. They are on pvc posts, and will be held up using re-bar at camp. The wards were asked to make their flag in the size of a king-sized pillow sham, using their ward's name, theme and color.

If you remember my post about 3'x4' photo enlargements, we decided to do the same thing for each ward. They will be displayed near the amphitheater at camp. I can't wait to show you how we will display them.

 The girls each got to sign their name on their wards poster. They loved doing this, and were so excited to see the photos at kickoff!

 We had tables set up with our camp logo printed on 4"x6" photos. We asked each girl to write on the back, what she would do to, "let her light shine." They wrote so many sweet things.

 See how there are holes punched in the top? These will be strung up along with cut up reusable shopping bag pieces that are cut in the same size as the logo photos into a banner, that will hang in the pavilion, so the girls can see what each other wrote on the back. I am really excited for this!

 We gave them each a little print out of our camp scripture/theme, which is: 

 Lisa got a bag of toe rings from Panda Hall for $4. They have suns on them. So, we thought it was fitting, and we made a little hand-out for each girl.

We had the YCL's do a little skit, which included a stomp for the scripture. We played games, sang fun camp songs, including going on a, "lion hunt." We then had a few spiritual thoughts, and closed with the girls singing our camp theme song. It was so awesome to hear their sweet voices, and the beautiful words of that song. I would by lying if I said I didn't get a little teary when I heard them sing this for the first time. I am not in Young Women's, so I haven't heard them practice every week. It was a real treat!

These are the words:

Light On A Hill
From the CD “Arise and Shine Forth” by Jenny Phillips

You are just one light in the darkness
Traveling by faith
But just one light
Is hope to the ones who’ve lost their way

You are a light on a hill
It cannot be hidden
Cannot be still
Sharing His light
‘Til the whole world is filled
You are a light on a hill

In a world that’s lost and lonely
Heaven works through you
Bringing hope to those who are searching
For the truth


Father rejoices on high
For the beauty that fills up your life
In all that you do
You have been true
And others can see Him through you


You can find the cd HERE
