This year's experience at camp was...incredible really. Last year I went as the fireside speaker and Faith Walk coordinator -- it was fantastic, but different. With this calling, I knew what was going on all the time. I knew most everything. And I saw the 6th levels transform. As they sought out the Spirit, I could see them mature and develop stronger testimonies. It was strengthening for me. Plus, they are dang awesome young women and I'm so glad we got to hang out all week. They had me laughing quite a bit. What a fun fun week. I don't have pictures of everything -- me rappelling and doing the MC Hammer on the side of the mountain, kayaking, and a ton of other stuff...but suffice it to say it was Grrrrrreat (thanks Tony the Tiger).
I am grateful for the chance I had to do it and look forward to next year...for now though, I'm back and ready to do all the stuff that was on hold while camp preparations were going -- yes, and this includes blogging.
|Lisa, me, Jen, Sadie on the boat. The advantage of being "programs" is that I had some down time during the day and could do, basically, what I wanted. On Tuesday, this meant spending all day at the lake. Niiiice.|
|Too bad this picture is blurry...Serena, Carissa, and Sara. Love these girls!|
|Sadie. What a babe.|
|Totally wished I had a good zoom lens here...beautiful waterfall.|
|I know I wasn't the 6 level leader, but I really feel like these are my girls. Just a few of them here, but love them all dearly.|

|You can kind of get an idea of what the regular daily decorations were -- colorful poofs, the bees, flags, paper lanterns over every table. It was cute, full of color.|
|Some of the clocks were still up from Night in Wonderland, but you get the idea.|
