Girl's Camp 2009

26 July 2009
Success! Another Girl's Camp came and went, and I think the girls had a good time. This year was much less stressful because I wasn't the person in charge. Plus, it was my second go at it so I had a better idea of what to plan and expect. One thing I've learned along the way is to focus less on making camp perfect and more on making the girls feel loved. And, they're actually really easy to love when you take the time to know them, rather than wasting all of your time being stressed and uptight over all of the details.

I wonder why someone brought shaving cream to camp. Curious.

We saw some incredible sunsets & sunrises.

This was the night we were all playing in the water & on the beach & spotted a couple of sharks a few feet away.

Can you see "Girl's Camp" in the sand?

And finally, our little octopus friend. We also saw 5 or 6 dolphins!

That must be the coolest girls camp ever! Where was my tropical beach girls camp when I was in young Womens?

Cassie, I can't even imagine what that must've been like... Incredible... incredibly difficult! How many leaders did you have? It would be cool no question about it but at what level of insomnia...

Ahhh, that sounds like my kind of camping. Except maybe the sharks. :) Looks like you guys had a great time! I bet they just love you! Who wouldn't? :)
