This year was stake girls' camp, and the theme they chose was Forever S.T.R.O.N.G. (Stand Together Righteously Our Noble Generation). It fit in perfectly with the 2010 mutual theme: "Be strong and of a good courage" (Joshua 1:9).
The girls had a great week and I think the themes of courage, strength, and bravery were exactly what we all needed to hear. I am constantly amazed at the things the girls teach me, they really act more like adults sometimes.
We had 11 girls and 4 leaders, which made us the smallest group there by far, but believe me it is quality, not quantity. We didn't have one ounce of drama (which is a girls' camp miracle). The girls left behind their families, friends, cellphones, facebook, twitter, etc. and just enjoyed a week at beautiful Heber Valley Camp.
YW Leaders: Alisha Chapman, Alecia Cardon, Jeani Tolboe, & Laura Horne
I had a great week, and if anything, I learned that there really is peace to be found when you leave the world behind.
**Aunt Anna is really paying her dues this year. I owe her big for running Camp Aunt Anna with Amos and Maggie so I could be at camp worry free. Sidenote: when we entered Heber Valley Camp they asked us if we had any firearms or children under 12. Apparently both are dangerous =)
